About Us

Capital W is a grassroots organisation founded in 2007 by UNSW Co-op students seeking to bridge the gap between university students and the corporate world. We host a range of events tailored to empowering women in business.

Presidential Address 


At Capital W, we believe every female student should be equipped and empowered to achieve brilliant things. We work alongside sponsors to co-create accessible opportunities to bridge the gap between university and the workforce and catalyse discussion on empowering women in all industries.

We are proud to have built a network of over 4,750 students, in a diverse range of faculties, and have had the privilege of partnering with 39 of Australia’s leading firms this year. Focusing on innovation and strengthening our agility to change, Capital W has not only continued but evolved existing initiatives and introduced new offerings to build relevance and engagement in 2022 leading into 2023.

Attracting over 900 student event attendees throughout 2022, we were able to connect a wider range of students and sponsors.

Our team continues to be motivated by the immense value that can be delivered to sponsors and students alike. We would love for you to join us in our 16th year of empowering and creating new opportunities for female students to excel in their careers.
