Young Women In Bio (YWIB) is a nationwide, nonprofit, volunteer organization that encourages young girls to explore opportunities, education, and careers in STEM. YWIB is affiliated with Women In Bio.
YWIB Seattle is dedicated to creating educational and motivational events that educate young women about career and entrepreneurial opportunities in STEM. Our events provide middle and high school-age girls with hands on activities, peer to peer networking and mentoring within a supportive and inspiring scientific environment. Additionally, we attend outreach events for students in K-12 within the community and schools to engage them in hands-on STEM-related activities.
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.
