Our current programs include:

1:1 Mentoring

A mentor can be a supervisor, a friend, a trainer, a teacher, an adviser, a counselor, a coach, and more. Mentor-mentee relationships can help in so many ways, including with career transitions, goal setting, and dealing with workplace difficulties. The 1:1 Mentoring Program pairs Mentors and Mentees based on areas of shared interest. The pair can then meet and talk at mutually convenient times in person. This program is for WIB members at any stage in their development, from students to senior executives looking for advice on career development, transitioning to an alternative career, work/family balance, promoting women at work, managing a team, and more. We highly encourage those who sign up as a mentee to give back and consider being mentors for the program as well. 

Mentoring Circles

Mentoring Circles bring together small groups. Typically, 2–3 mentors and 3–4 mentees are placed in groups (otherwise called circles) based on mutual areas of interest. Mentees set goals and work towards a plan that is reviewed consistently with their mentors. Members of each circle meet monthly for six months. An additional fee applies for mentees to join the MAPS program.

Peer Groups

Peer Groups are local informal meetings of 6–10 women who are interested in discussing topics of common professional interest and provide consistent support, advice, and encouragement to each other. Peer Groups are typically a mix of seniority, roles, and types of life science companies. Meetings are self-directed, with the group deciding when, where, and how often to meet. Some groups may choose to meet over breakfast or lunch, and others may meet in the evenings or for dinner or wine tastings. Ultimately, every MAPS Group will develop its own character that reflects its members’ personalities, interests, goals, and schedules.


Women In Bio is an organization of professionals committed to promoting careers, leadership, and entrepreneurship of all women in the life sciences.

WIB membership and events are inclusive of all who support our mission.
