We are excited to announce that our Scholar Network continues to grow and thrive!

C200 Scholars are young women, selected by C200 members while they are MBA or STEM graduate students, as the women we believe will be the next generation of women business leaders. With the leadership and support of Roz Alford and Karen Greenbaum, we have built a strong and connected network which aims to support these women as they navigate their career paths.

Welcome our New Scholars
Recently, we have invited sixteen extraordinary Scholars to join our network from UCLA, Tel Aviv University and The Technion University in Haifa, Israel. This impressive and diverse group of women inspired us with what they have already accomplished and their potential.
