Gruenberg Society

Purpose
With more than 3,200 John Cook School of Business alumnae in the St. Louis area alone, the Gruenberg Society aims to reconnect alumnae with the John Cook School of Business and other local businesswomen. The Gruenberg Society is also open to nonalumnae through sponsorship by a current Gruenberg member. In addition to providing networking, professional development and social event opportunities to our members, another goal of the Gruenberg Society is to establish a future endowed professorship in the name of Dr. Gladys Gruenberg, professor emeritus in economics and the first tenured female faculty member in the Business School.

History
Through the leadership of Dean Ellen Harshman and Gruenberg Society Chairwoman Anne Gagen, the Gruenberg Society was formed in 2006. Dr. Gladys Gruenberg, professor emeritus in economics, was the first tenured female faculty member at the John Cook School of Business. Dr. Gruenberg also served as director of the women’s MBA program and led efforts to provide scholarship funding and personal development for female MBA students.

Mission
The mission of the Gruenberg Society is to celebrate the significance and impact of women through valuable networking, professional development and social events.
