Meet Liz Benz, an alum with a contagious smile who was once deemed the mom of the fraternity.
She graduated from CU in May of 2016 from Leeds with a double emphasis in operations and information management. Today, she is living in downtown Denver working at Charles Schwab. She works in project services and coordinates with teams across the firms to help provide business solutions to better aid clients.
Her words of wisdom: "We are human beings; not human doers. Never treat someone like a machine on your path to success and remember to always remain humble, gracious and generous. How you treat people and how you make others feel will take you further than you think!"

Since then she has taken a different career path and works at Bain & Company, a consulting firm in Chicago where she focuses her efforts on gender parity. She develops strategies to determine how to get more women into senior leadership roles, both at Bain, and in the workplace more broadly.
