News Story

If you’re looking for a student organization that brings women’s empowerment and opportunities to network and gain professional experience at Pace, you’ve come to the right place. Meet SWAP.

Want to be a success woman at Pace? Then it’s time to join the Successful Women at Pace. Successful Women at Pace [SWAP], a new student organization and network centered around women’s empowerment, networking, and career opportunities, has only been around for a month, but they’ve already lined up speakers, events, a mentorship program, and much more. The network showcases many different committees that students can become involved with including events and promotion, mentorship, public relations, alumni relations, University relations, scholarship, merchandising, and even its very own internship program. 

SWAP’s overall mission is to “enhance the experience of women at Pace, as well as prepare, empower, and connect Pace women in both their professional and personal lives.” For now, SWAP is focusing on providing a comfortable space where Pace women can come together to be united on both a professional and personal level; kick-starting its Peer Mentorship program, in which lower classmen will be paired with upperclassmen to share experiences and advice; and providing exclusive internship opportunities which are posted on the SWAP Network page. Long term goals include providing a guest speaker series of outstanding women in their career fields; connecting SWAP members to alumni and others in their field who may serve as a resource; and giving exclusive invites to industry events.

Alexandra Osten, president and founder of SWAP, created the network as a means for women on campus to have a resource to network with one another, gain valuable experience, find career opportunities, and empower each other. The first network of its kind, SWAP carries a unique Rolodex of professional contacts which can lead its members to the opportunities they dream of. 

SWAP meets every other Tuesday from 3:25 p.m. to 4:25pm in W614. The next meeting will be held on October 28.
