This is a guest post from Catherine Nichols, a junior at IU, and marketing intern for the Career Lab.

Consider this eye-opening fact: the language of business now drives success in every industry including the arts, public service, media and entertainment, publishing and even not-for-profit enterprises. Come explore how business knowledge can enhance your academic background, professional ambitions, and social or service interests, and help you segue into an exciting and opportunity-rich career.

On Thursday, February 25 in room 0034 of the Godfrey Center, the Forté Foundation is hosting a Career Lab for female undergraduate students. These events feature industry panels, networking sessions, and interactive workshops at which accomplished women from top companies and the Kelley School of Business MBA Program discuss the new world of business and help women envision their role in it. Regardless of major, all undergraduate women with an interest in business will benefit from their insights.

This year’s main speaker is Lindsey Pollak, a bestselling
