February 1st marks the beginning of Black History Month, and to support MassBio’s efforts towards increasing the visibility, presence and leadership of Black women in the Massachusetts’s biopharma industry, we’ve partnered with Black Women in Science and Engineering (BWISE) to present Black HERstory Month.
This video series highlights the achievements of Black women across the fields of healthcare, biotechnology, and the life sciences. Every weekday in the month of February, we’ll bring you the story of a trailblazer from the 1800s to now and the impact she’s had on history.
February 28 – Conclusion
Black Women in Science and Engineering (BWISE) was founded in 2015 with the purpose to support underrepresented women in bridging the leadership gap through networking, mentorship and career development. The group consists of Black women from middle management through senior leadership with degrees in the sciences, math and engineering, and provides opportunities to network, share career experiences, and access training and professional development programs.
