Life Science Nation & Women In Bio Join Forces to Feature Women In Bio Members at RESI

9 Apr

By Erich White, Business Development Manager, West Coast, LSN

LSN is pleased to announce that Women In Bio will be joining the RESI Conference Series as a Gold Sponsor for both the Digital RESI partnering event on April 29-30, and Digital RESI conference, June 8-10. Women In Bio plays a vital role in the life sciences, ensuring women founders and first time CEOs have the resources and support needed to grow successful bioscience-related businesses, and providing a forum for women to come together to celebrate and support each other’s success. WIB is partnering with LSN to connect women leading early stage life science companies with global investors and strategic partners. WIB will also sponsor a pitch session during the Digital RESI conference in June, featuring 5 WIB-member companies.

Women In Bio – Engage. Educate. Empower.

Women in Bio/WIB is a US non-profit organization founded in 2002 to support and connect women in the life sciences from the classroom to the board room.

We are an organization of professional women from all career walks in the field of life sciences. We are all volunteers and we all share the goal of enabling and empowering women to reach the highest levels of leadership, and — more importantly — to fulfill their own career aspirations.

We belong to biotech and pharma companies, universities and institutes, law and accounting firms, marketing and PR firms, CROs and CMOs.

WIB’s primary focus is to provide women-to-women mentorship and leadership support through all stages of career development

  • from bench to boardroom
  • from academia to industry
  • from first job to last
  • from idea to entrepreneur

With 13 chapters in the US and Canada WIB is committed to fulfill this mission with educational webinars, events, mentoring and networking.

Some of the well-recognized programs are:

Young Women in Bio with STEM education, Executive Women in Bio with the Board Room Ready program.

Many of our members are entrepreneurs, and a focus on entrepreneurship has remained core to WIB’s mission.

With the WIB-Entrepreneur Center we started an entrepreneur focused program dedicated to supporting female founders and first time CEOs from early start-up to later project stages of their life science companies. Besides offering resources, educational webinars as well as mentoring, we engage women founders/CEOs in peer to peer forums and work on the most critical need which is access to capital and corporate partnerships by offering this year in June a Women In Bio sponsored virtual Pitch Challenge in partnership with Life Science Nation (LSN)/RESI.
