WISB Executive Committee
The Women in Student Businesses (WISB) program seeks to gather and support young, entrepreneurial Dartmouth women looking to learn more about and potentially invest in Dartmouth's student businesses. Realizing that only 10% of Dartmouth's student business owners were women, WISB was created in 2019 to equalize business ownership at Dartmouth, leveraging mentorship, education, and opportunity connection in order to prepare women for and connect women to ownership opportunities. WISB prides itself on its innovative, action-oriented and visionary member base.
Kiera Klinsky ’21 is a native New Yorker studying government and geography. As Chairman of Dartmouth Student Affairs (the main branch of Dartmouth’s Student Assembly) she worked to organize and direct teams of student senators through various projects. During her tenure, she successfully implemented solutions to food insecurity over winter break and Dartmouth Coach ticket subsidization among other things. Kiera is also one of the first women to own a student-business on campus. As a manager of the furniture-leasing company Evolving Vox, she spearheaded a rebranding campaign, introduced a new product line, and advised on expansion opportunities. Ultimately, Kiera’s experience in the student-business sphere has made her passionate about entrepreneurship on campus and lead her to establish a program to achieve greater participation among her female classmates. This summer, she will continue to practice solution strategy as an intern for Teneo, a global consulting firm. In her free time, Kiera is a ski patroller for the Dartmouth Skiway and a DREAM mentor. Kiera is on the Magnuson Student Leadership Board and is the President of the newly formed Women in Student Business (WISB) with a focus to support young, entrepreneurial Dartmouth women looking to learn more about and potentially invest in Dartmouth's student businesses.
When Kiera Klinsky bought shares in a Dartmouth student business, she was the only female owner of a student business on campus. She was determined to help change that, and founded Women In Student Business, a program ofthe Magnuson Center to remove barriers to entry for female executives.
