About 50 women from the Philadelphia and New York Women In Bio chapters networked together at Amicus Therapeutics on May 23, 2018. The location provided the opportunity for the numerous women working in the biopharma corridor between New York and Philadelphia to connect. Philadelphia chapter President Dunni Odumosu welcomed us and introduced some of the Executive board for the Philly chapter: Sima Kulkarni and Lisa Fry (Program co-chairs), Robyn Sussman (Communications, Vice-Chair), Lindsay Breedlove (MAPS co-chair), who briefly shared their WIB experiences. Dunni pointed out that the size of WIB events is limited to allow for building strong connections: a great approach judging by the lively conversations that could be observed.

Posted By Breezy Lachance, Tuesday, May 21, 2019

Eight high school students from Carver High School of Engineering and Science attended an onsite event at FCCC which included a tour of the facilities and career mini talks with women in various stages of their careers. 
 
The program began with Amanda Purdy, Ph.D., Manager of Academic Programs and Training at FCCC, giving an overview of FCCC’s missions and a tour of the campus. She asked the girls compelling questions to engage and educate them on different opportunities in STEM fields.

The program continued with four women speaking about their current roles at FCCC, their educational experience and their path to where they are today. 

The students were exposed to a diverse range of experience and paths to careers in Science from an engaging group of women. 

Kim Colby, Scientific Technician 
Jessica Wagner, Graduate Student
Katelynn Milora, Ph.D., Early stage Postdoc
Ilsiya Ibragimova, Ph.D., Senior Postdoc

The day wrapped up with a roundtable lunch with the students and speakers engaging in informal discussion about the topics of the day. This lunch allowed the girls to connect one on one and ask questions. 
 
Thank you to Dr. Amanda Purdy and the FCCC team for their time and dedication to supporting education of girls in STEM and a special thanks to West Pharmaceuticals for sponsoring the event.
