Young Women in Bio (YWIB) is a nationwide, non-profit, volunteer organization that encourages young women to explore education, careers, and other opportunities in STEM. YWIB gives girls the inspiration and support they need to become tomorrow’s leaders in science, technology, engineering and Math (STEM). We aspire to be the “go to” organization for girls looking to shape and change the world through STEM, providing them with the tools and resources they need to build successful careers.  We exist to ignite the curiosity and fuel the passion in girls, supporting them as they shape and change the world.

Important Update! Given the growing number of social distancing mandates and restrictions on large events and other gatherings across the United States and Canada due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus, YWIB may decide to postpone or cancel many of its upcoming YWIB events and programs in the interest of public health and safety.  Please check in regularly to the webpage for the latest update on our events and programs, or email us at  YWIB@womeninbio.org.

What YWIB Greater Boston Does:

  • Organizes interactive outreach events to introduce STEM topics and career options to young women.
  • Arranges visits to biotech and academic facilities, providing on-site observation, hands- on activities, and networking with women in STEM careers.
  • Conducts discussion panels featuring women in high-profile STEM careers to share their educational backgrounds, career path and experiences.
