Last year I was not able to travel to BIO 2017 in San Diego but still managed to record some material by phone, and had a little on-site help from Dalyce Semko Suanez who works in public relations and has clients who attend BIO.
Dalyce talked with Jamie Strachota who was the Executive Director of Women in Bio, an organization which has been working to bring more women into the biotechnology sector at all levels. It has chapters across the U.S. and one in Canada
based in Montreal.
The organization has been featured on past podcasts and I hope to talk with them again at BIO 2018 taking place in Boston from June 4th
to the 7th
. In the meantime though, here is the conversation between Dalyce and Jamie which will give you an idea of what the organization is all about. They also touch on a new WIB initiative
which encourages young girls to explore STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) opportunities from school through to a career.
