Women in Biotech and Women In Bio team up for our 2nd Transatlantic event!
Joining and Building Diverse Start-up Boards for Success
Thursday 4 November 2021 | 4PM - 7.30PM GMT
Following our fantastic inaugural Transatlantic Women in Biotech event in March, we are working with the fabulous Women In Bio to serve up another incredible opportunity to network, share experience and be inspired by a top selection of speakers and participants from Europe and the States.
This event will focus on Start-Up Board leadership for women – both from the perspectives of women seeking to gain Board experience – and conversely – Start-Ups looking to build a diverse Board. It will therefore be of interest both to seasoned life science leaders looking to expand their experience into Board roles, and to early stage leaders looking for advice on how they can find and attract the Board members they need to help take them to the next stage of development and beyond.
This event will be held online on the Remo platform.

Women In Bio was established in 2002 to help women entrepreneurs and executives in the Baltimore-Washington-Northern Virginia area build successful bioscience-related businesses.
The founders of WIB: Cynthia W. Hu, Robbie Melton, Anne Mathias, and Elizabeth Grey wanted to provide a forum for women to come together to celebrate and support each other's success, and in so doing created a dynamic and invaluable forum for the local community.
The mission of WIB expanded several years later, with a vision to grow it to an organization with a national footprint that would impact the careers of women in all sectors of the life sciences industry.
That vision has now become a reality, as we have 13 chapters throughout North America, led by more than 225 volunteers and a membership base of over 2,600. Thousands of women attend WIB events each year, and continue to grow the organization through their ideas, activities and donations.
Thanks to its founders and past presidents, WIB has become a community that represents one of the fastest growing and most influential organizations for women in life sciences.
You will be able to join us online to network and, similar to an in-person event, move from virtual table to table to mingle with other attendees. The platform we will be using also includes useful features which will allow you to message directly with other attendees and share LinkedIn details to connect. There is also a general chat for all attendees.
During the panel discussion you will be able to submit and vote on audience questions and we will try our best to cover everything in the time allocated.
