Women in Entrepreneurship Law Society (WELS)

The Women in Entrepreneurship Law Society’s mission is to inspire creative thought and empower women with the skills they need to engage in women’s leadership and entrepreneurial ventures in interdisciplinary pursuits.

Our organization is open to everyone who seeks to promote gender equality in the quest for innovation. WELS endeavors to broaden the horizons of Penn Law students to the vast possibilities that can be achieved with a law degree.

WELS will coordinate educational events, panels, networking opportunities and symposia in an effort to inform and empower members, as well as connect Penn Law students with members of the community.
