Women in Bio

Promoting diversity and inclusion for all women in the life sciences

iRelaunch is proud to partner with Women In Bio, an organization of professionals committed to promoting careers, leadership, and entrepreneurship for all women in the life sciences. WIB’s primary focus is to provide women-to-women mentorship and leadership support through all stages of career development.

WIB members reflect the increasing spread of the life sciences. They belong to biotech and pharma companies, universities and institutes, law and accounting firms, marketing and PR firms, CROs, and CMOs. Many WIB members are entrepreneurs, and a focus on entrepreneurship has remained core to WIB's mission.

Professional women from all career walks in the field of life sciences volunteer to share the goal of enabling and empowering women to reach the highest levels of leadership, and — more importantly — to fulfill their own career aspirations. 

Our Services

WIB aims to help women achieve the highest levels of leadership, influence, and decision-making that they desire. They focus our activities on education, mentoring and networking, and on creating opportunities for leadership that can help advance careers.



Chapters hold events that fall broadly into two categories; professional development or educational events and social or purely networking events. Most of these events have time dedicated to meeting new people and networking.

Mentoring and giving back are core tenets at WIB. Their Mentorship, Advisors, Peers, and Sponsorship (MAPS) program provides a forum for groups of up to ten women with common interests to gather and exchange advice and views. The Young Women In Bio (YWIB) program encourages middle- and high-school girls to enter STEM by creating fun, hands-on, laboratory events partnered with local biotech companies. The Boardroom Ready program is designed to identify and amplify C-suite women who are ready, willing, and able to contribute and serve on corporate boards.
