Successful women abound in the sciences. Women In Bio-Pittsburgh is excited to celebrate Women’s History Month in March by hearing from distinguished women across a variety of science professions – from academia, to industry, to law. Join these inspiring women to hear about their career journeys – their successes and their challenges – and how they lead and inspire others to be successful in their careers. In addition to a moderated panel discussion, speakers will be available during a networking session with light food and refreshments. Bring your friends and colleagues and join us for an inspiring evening.

Because Women In Bio supports people at all stages of their lives and careers, the wonderful caregivers at Flexable will provide onsite childcare free of cost to parents with children two and older during the event. Please register all children who will be attending in advance by clicking here.
