Dear AIB members,

WAIB turns 20 this year! To commemorate our anniversary, we’re hosting 20 celebrations all year long, examining both how far we’ve come, and where we’re headed in the future. Details are available on our newly redesigned website, email list, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn Group. We now also have a dedicated LinkedIn page.

If you follow our social media channels, you might have noticed that the SIG has begun releasing a set of celebratory “Top 20” reading lists. For our first list, Tanvi Kothari and Stacey Fitzsimmons picked their favorite 20 articles at the intersection of migration and diversity in IB. The #1 article on the list is accompanied by an interview with the author, Dr Banu Özkazanc-Pan. More top 20 lists will be released soon on the following topics:

  1. Gender, corporate governance and emerging markets,
  2. International careers
  3. Gender and sustainability
  4. Diversity and Entrepreneurship in IB

To stay up-to-date on all of the latest WAIB news, we strongly recommend you subscribe to our Listserv, WAIB-L. Joining is easy: Send an email message to with the following in the body of the email: SUBSCRIBE WAIB-L YourFirstName YourLastName (for example, SUBSCRIBE WAIB-L Jane Doe). You can also set your WAIB-L subscription to be delivered as a weekly digest by sending a message to with the command SET WAIB-L DIGEST YourFirstName YourLastName (for example, SET WAIB-L DIGEST Jane Doe).
