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..
Our mission at YWIB San Francisco is to create programs and events that ignite girls’ curiosity in the sciences while nurturing a business and entrepreneurial spirit. Our events are geared towards encouraging middle and high school girls to consider the life sciences as a career choice by giving them exposure to different aspects of the thriving Bay Area biotechnology ecosystem.
If your business is interested in sponsoring an event, or if you would like more information, please feel free to contact sanfranciscoYWIB@womeninbio.org.
