Women bioscience workers start group for networking, mentoring in Madison

Getting more women into scientific jobs in the Madison area — that’s the goal of a new effort starting this month.


Women in Biohealth launches on January 17 with a roundtable discussion and networking event, organized by BioForward, the state’s biohealth advocacy organization.

The idea is to “bring women together and to support young professionals and students” and show them “there are paths for women in (the biotech) industry,” said BioForward CEO Lisa Johnson.
