Country: United Kingdom

Host: BIA - Biotechnology Industry Association

Returning as an in-person event, our first live WIB since March 2020 will take place at the beautiful University Arms in Cambridge (Thursday 23 September 2021 | 6PM – 9PM) – we are looking forward to bringing the WIB community together again and also to welcoming new faces.

At this event we will be focusing on the challenges faced by women from minority groups as they establish themselves and become leaders in the life sciences. We’re looking forward to hearing personal stories and gaining some professional tips from our fantastic panel of incredible women in biotech – in addition we’ll discuss how the sector should respond in terms of increasing inclusivity and developing diverse talent pools.
