Members have reached more than 12,000 students and given more than $1.5 million in Scholar Awards.


CEOs and entrepreneurs from The Committee of 200 provide support and outreach to MBA, college and high school students through the Foundation’s signature Reachout programs. Through these intensive events at leading universities both in the United States and around the world, C200 members connect with young women and share their expertise and insights to inspire future women business leaders. Our Reachout programs address three key groups of ambitious, forward-thinking women.



  • At the college level, C200 members seek to demonstrate the value of pursuing a career in business to young women who may not have made their initial career decisions.  
  • Our members participate in panels and roundtable discussions with students aimed at demonstrating the positive aspects of a business career, dispelling myths about pursuing a business career, and the many possibilities that exist within different fields.


  • Our MBA Reachout programs seek to provide critical support and inspiration.
  • Our members spend a day participating in panels, roundtable discussions and networking with the students to provide support for their leadership careers in business.  Students customize their curriculum design for the day so that it responds to their most pressing issues as they contemplate their post-MBA careers. 
  • Participating students at each school are given the opportunity to apply for one of three C200 Scholar Awards of up to $10,000 each.
  • 2014 Reachouts have included Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, the American University in Kuwait, Tel Aviv University, Stanford and the University of Arkansas.
