Women are increasing their profile in biotech, and nowhere was this more evident than at the WIB events at BIO2013 in Chicago. For the first time, WIB held its Annual Celebration at BIO, enabling members from around the country to meet and mingle against the stunning backdrop of Chicago seen from the gourmet Metropolitan Club of the Sears (Willis) Tower. Over 275 people enjoyed the keynote speech by Dr. Jill Milne, CEO of Catabasis, heard the inspiring stories of some of the Fierce Biotech women leaders presented by Jennifer Levin, Managing Editor, Life Sciences, FierceBiotech and then chatted, networked, ate and drank well into the warm summer evening.
Inside the convention, the WIB booth welcomed hundreds of visitors, interested in membership, chapter development, and collaboration – all excited about the mission of advancing leadership and entrepreneurship for women in life sciences. Two WIB Meet-Ups brought together over 75 attendees each, mixing people with diverse backgrounds and specializations but a common interest in women’s careers. A WIB Panel on the Importance of Networking provided a full room with an interactive educational session on the topics of how to network, proper follow-ups and the value of mentoring.
The increasing profile of WIB also saw an unprecedented number of interviews involving members of the WIB leadership: President Phyl Dillinger was interviewed by Biotech Now and featured in the BIO2013 daily; Kate Neville, vice-chair of the Chicago chapter, interviewed Rachel King, the first female CEO of BIO; Simone Fishburn, President-Elect, interviewed Seema Kumar, VP Enterprise Innovation and Global Communications at J&J, and over 12 WIB leaders were interviewed by the Chemical Heritage Foundation, and will be featured over the coming year on their website. Phyl and Simone also spread the word of the mission of WIB through a joint interview at the BIO Buzz Center and a special feature in the BIO2013 issue of BioProcess International.
WIB received tremendous feedback, in person, in print, and by the newest measure – social media. Next year BIO2014 will be held in San Diego, giving our newly formed Southern California chapter a perfect place to celebrate its one-year anniversary. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential. We will discuss the challenges that women face in the workplace, and how we can each create a blueprint for individual growth to change the conversation from what we can’t do to what we can.

WIB-Southern California Chapter Kick-off Event a Huge Success
Tuesday April 30, 2013 marked the day that the WIB- Southern California Chapter held their Kick-off event at Janssen Labs in San Diego, CA. The event was very well attended with surprisingly little no-shows and many walk-in registrants. The members of the steering committee displayed an amazing amount of grace under pressure as the unexpected amount of registrants were lining up at the welcome table.
Dr. Gail Naughton was a stupendous choice for keynote speaker at this launch event. From the moment she stepped up to the podium she charmed the audience with stories of her childhood that made one understand how she became the dynamic individual she is today. She shared experiences of challenges she’s faced as a woman entrepreneur and how she overcame them in this still male dominated environment. Her career has been an eclectic mix of scientific tenacity and business savvy all while balancing family life and motherhood. She closed her presentation by talking about the importance of finding and being good mentors, which couldn’t have touched upon the aim of Women In Bio more closely.
The WIB-Southern California Chapter steering committee is already planning the next event and excited to provide programs for Young Women in Bio, the subgroup of WIB that provides support to women just beginning their careers. WIB welcomes collaboration from other organizations as each one has something unique to offer the community and they hope to tap into that network and not compete with it. WIB welcomes everyone to participate and hopes to inspire women and men in all stages of their career.

On April 3, 2013, WIB-Seattle Metro joined 202 viewing events in 65 countries for TEDxChange 2013, “Positive Disruption”. The amazing line-up of speakers shared how they are positively disrupting society, agriculture, technology and communities in ways that make our world a better place, including two young vaccine advocates from Calcutta, and they inspired us and made us think of new ways to move positive disruption forward. We learned that just tweeting or posting about a social cause makes a difference. To watch the 90-minute event, go to: http://www.ted.com/pages/tedxchange_webcast. A big thank you to Cooley LLP Seattle for hosting us at their beautiful new office space.
YWIB-Seattle Metro’s Sold-Out Theatre Event at "Photograph 51", honoring the late Rosalind Franklin, Is a Huge Success
Tickets sold fast for "Photograph 51", a play honoring scientist Rosalind Franklin, whose contributions were crucial to the discovery of the double-helical structure of DNA. With a well-written script by
Anna Ziegler highlighting the gender politics Franklin faced in a male-dominated field, the stage was set for avid young women scientists to be inspired and enlightened.
YWIB-Seattle Metro committee members coordinated large posters and information pamphlets on other notable but oft-overlooked female scientists, and encouraged future WIB and YWIB members to think about the role of women in science. YWIB maintained an information booth throughout the event and worked hard to address all of the questions that the young people, their parents, and other patrons had regarding women and science careers, and YWIB and WIB, and how to get involved.

WIB-RTP’s Spring Networking Event A Hugh Success
WIB-RTP’s spring networking event on Thursday, March 7, 2013 was a huge success. Sixty eight exceptional women from different background, to include R&D, clinical research, pharmacy, regulatory affairs, sales, marketing, business development, accounting and human resources, gathered at Serena’s in Research Triangle Park, NC. The event started with WIB-RTP Chair, Susan Nichols welcoming everyone to the first event of the year. Diana Zeng, Programs Chair followed Susan and described an exciting roaster of educational, networking and fun events WIB has in store. Natalia Mitin introduced the sponsors, ImmunoReagents and WorldWide Life Sciences. The networking event was divided in two sessions. The first session involved a structured networking where there were discussions amongst attendees grouped in smaller groups. The open networking that followed was an exciting opportunity to follow up on the conversations that were originated in smaller groups, getting introduced to other people by your new acquaintances or just walk around and chat with other people eager to get to know each other. It was exciting to see the levels of engagement and a desire to help each other and to stay connected. The feedback from the attendees was overwhelmingly positive. Below are a couple of quotes:
“I liked the break-out sessions with the different numbers. The smaller sessions provided a more intimate forum for introductions”
“Thank you for your organization and recognizing the need for networking among women in the science fields”
WIB-RTP’s Y-WIB Holds Event at Biogen Idec
WIB-RTP hosted a Y-WIB event on Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at Biogen Idec. Once again, Biogen Idec graciously opened its doors to 21 curious middle school girls to host a fun and interesting Young Women In Bio (Y-WIB) event. In conjunction with WIB-RTP, Biogen Idec provided an afternoon of lab activities that mimic real world jobs and careers.
The young women heard from female scientists who work in various departments of Biogen Idec from Quality Control (QC) to Patient Services. They then learned what it means to have those jobs by shadowing the ladies on a tour of the facility. The new community lab was utilized for lab activities and discussions. The afternoon wrapped up with pizza and conversations between the young women and Biogen Idec employees.
Women In Bio is thrilled and grateful for the continued partnership with Biogen Idec to continue to expose young women to promising scientific careers with Y-WIB events.
WIB-San Francisco Bay Area Women Network Over Chocolate Deliciousness!
In an evening as interesting as it was tasty, 37 members of the WIB-San Francisco Bay Area heard from former Prion researcher, Sunita de Tourreil, about her career journey from “Mad Cows” to “Happy Chocolate.” Those in attendance networked with fellow WIB members and learned that the field of cacao and chocolate “covers everything from chemistry, politics, agriculture, biology, love, neuroreceptors, flavor, exploitation, vasodilation, addiction, and sustainability.” Sunita, owner and curator at The Chocolate Garage, discussed the emerging world of bean-to-batch chocolates and how chocolate production is affecting the health of communities around the world, and then led a blind tasting of some of the most delicious artisanal chocolate bars imaginable. We also learned how the varied flavors in different chocolates could pair with a surprising variety of wines and beers, including both white and rose sparkling wines, red wines, sauterne and Belgian beer. In addition, each attendee was invited to take a bar of our favorite chocolate of the evening home for further enjoyment. Definitely a fun evening as well as an educational one!

San Francisco Bay Area Holds East Bay Speed Networking Event
The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter hosted a regional speed networking event in the East Bay. The event attracted not only ~30 locals but a few “non-natives” from La Jolla, Cambridge, MA and Durham, NC! The partakers noshed and networked in double time at the DOE Joint Genome Institute in Walnut Creek. JGI not only served as a fantastic backdrop for building valuable connections, but the participants were treated to an education about the work performed at the lab. Did you know JGI scientists sequenced chromosomes 5, 16 and 19 as part of the greater human genome project and continue to perform next gen sequencing related to clean energy, environmental characterization and cleanup? Cindy Silva, mayor of Walnut Creek, also spoke to the group about the city’s history and prospect as a life sciences hub.
YWIB-ATL Holds Maiden Event
On January 26 2013, YWIB-ATL participated in an STEM Outreach event to girls in Factory Shoals Middle School, Douglasville GA. This event was sponsored by the Douglas-Carroll-Paulding Counties Alumnae Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and organized by Emory College Center for Science Education. YWIB-ATL chair Sylvia Yip and volunteer Katherine Bowden led the girls in the strawberry DNA extraction experiment while vice-chair Lisa Pavento served in the panel to discuss careers in STEM with the girls. The girls each happily received a YWIB bracelet.
WIB-Greater Montreal and the British Quebec Business Coalition debate with passion!
On a cold winter night, WIB-Greater Montreal and the British Quebec Business Coalition co-hosted an evening of fiery debate, collegial networking and raising awareness about two great organizations. Over beers and crisps (chips in “North American”!), Carmela DeLuca, John DiMaio and Catherine Argyriou debated for the affirmative, “This house believes that, everything considered, biotechnology research would be better conducted in Quebec than in the UK.” as Tracey Rowlands, Marilyn Krelenbaum and Paul Plestedargued against the motion. Both teams debated passionately, and in the end, after polling the audience, moderator John Lawson called it a draw! We thank the Burgundy Lion for providing a cosy venue for the event and thank all attendees for their good spirits, especially in light of those icy Arctic winds!
