Women in Bio is an organization with 12 Chapters in the U.S. and one in Montreal. Its mission is simple - encourage women to choose the life sciences as a career whether it is to be involved as a scientist, or one of the many other opportunities in biotech from marketing to leading from the C-Suite.
I got 3 representatives from WIB (you'll hear them refer to themselves as exactly that - WIB) together as the big BIO 2018 conference in Boston to talk about their organization and one of its new initiatives, Young Women in Bio
(Y-WIB to the uninitiated). While I was setting recording levels the conversation swung over to the many hats that women working in the life sciences have to wear. Rather than start over from where I planed, there is a rough edit early on and I let the 3 enthusiastic and passionate volunteers take the lead. It is a great discussion about the role of women in the life sciences and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
