Originally the national headquarters for WIB, the "Washington DC/Baltimore" chapter officially became its own chapter in October 2011. Located along the I-270 Corridor in Maryland and also covering DC, Northern Virginia and the greater Baltimore area, this setting is central to what Governor Martin O’Malley called, "one of the largest bioscience clusters in the nation, perhaps in the world."
On September 1, 2017, we changed our chapter name from “WIB-DC/Baltimore” to “WIB-Capital Region” to better reflect the growing BioHealth Capitol Region initiative for our geographic area. While we will still be the same chapter under the same leadership, this change also reflects our initiative to broaden our reach to include more events in Northern Virginia, Frederick, and beyond.
The WIB-Capital Region Chapter community is dedicated to creating opportunities and careers for women in the life science industry and to encouraging women in our region to translate novel discoveries into products. Our chapter symbolizes the significance of promoting the dynamic women in the biotechnology and life sciences industry in this area and globally. Our membership consists of professionals at leading pharmaceutical, biotechnology, device and diagnostics companies, non-profits, academic institutions, and support service companies, including law firms, consultants, and financial service firms.
To learn more about us, please see the gallery of our past events, video library (member benefit), and media coverage of our chapter.
