On November 20, 2019, over 35 life science professional women joined us at the WIB-San Francisco Bay Area: MAPS Fall Launch Networking Event at Brew382 in South San Francisco. The event was to kick-off the Fall 2019 MAPS cycling for peer groups and mentoring pairs. The venue was ideally situated with its close proximity to the BioHub capital. Throughout the evening, new peer groups and 1:1 mentoring pairs met face-to-face. Current and prospective members were able to learn more about the MAPS community and the greater WIB network and how both are helping to launch and further propel the careers of our local Bay Area professionals. Everyone felt a strong momentum for 2020, and we can’t wait to host our next event in the Spring!
