Posted By Daisy Bourassa , Wednesday, August 14, 2019
YWIB-Atlanta attended the annual church STEM fair and had so much fun talking about the structure of a cell. This was the 11th annual Saint Philips AME Church STEM Fair. The purpose of this fair is to expose K-12 students to S.T.E.M. careers through hands-on activities with professionals in science, engineering, and math, as well as a variety of technical careers. St. Philip’s Resource Ministry is working to make sure middle and high school students are exposed to careers to encourage their interest in pursuing S.T.E.M. opportunities.

Posted By Breezy Lachance, Tuesday, July 30, 2019

WIB-Atlanta celebrated the end of the year with friends, old and new on December 9, 2018 with a casual holiday gathering at the beautiful home of one of our WIB-Atlanta colleagues.

The event was successful, with most of the WIB-Atlanta members and leaders (along with their friends) in attendance. We met many new people!

Everyone in attendance brought a dish to share and there were wonderful desserts and drinks.

While networking, many new members expressed interest in volunteering for WIB-Atlanta in 2019.

At the end of this event, a new leadership team for 2019 was announced and pictures were taken. There was also an exciting raffle, with several women winning prizes.

Everyone went home with a new WIB visor -  a small gift from the WIB-Atlanta chapter to thank the members for their volunteering efforts and for helping make the WIB-Atlanta Chapter successful.

WIB-Atlanta Presents: “It is an Art to Stay Feminine, Yet Powerful” with Adele Wang, November 12, 2018

Posted By Breezy Lachance, Tuesday, May 14, 2019

WIB-Atlanta organized “It is an Art to Stay Feminine, Yet Powerful” with Adele Wang on November 12, 2018. The event was held at Thompson Hine - Two Alliance Center on Lenox Road in Atlanta.

This was a Career/Personal Development Joint Event with the Women’s Series of the Belgian, French, Netherlands, and German American Chambers of Commerce, the British American Business Council, and the Japan-American Society of Georgia. It was the first time Women In Bio participated in this partnership.

Adele talked about “How to get noticed” and “Attract more of what you want” for professional and personal success. She addressed how women in business often feel pressure to fit in with their male counterparts. In turn, they suppress female traits that are an integral part of any businessperson’s arsenal for success. The art of negotiation, team building, and leadership are natural traits women should place at the forefront of their tools for success. Expressing natural feminine traits gets the attention one really wants for successful business and personal relationships. She also talked about methods for de-stressing and avoiding being overwhelmed in the process. It was a very well attended event.

Adele specializes in helping spiritual women entrepreneurs develop their natural feminine radiance, so they stand out with their personal presence, attract more clients and are paid what they are worth.  She is a frequent speaker, workshop facilitator, and mentor of many budding transformational entrepreneurs.
