Young Women in Bio (YWIB) Biotechnology Career Leadership for Girls is a series of events dedicated to inspiring girls in biotechnology education and career choices. We encourage girls’ curiosity in biotechnology while nurturing a business and entrepreneurial spirit. These events include exposure to many different female science professionals, their careers and experiences; an in-depth look at a bioscience organization; and a tour of a bioscience facility. The events are open to girls in grades 6-8.
