New Collaboration: international Women in Science (iWiS)

It is with great pleasure that we announce that we will be collaborating with international Women In Science (iWiS) in the lead up to the International Forum on Women’s Brain and Mental Health, taking place in Zurich on 8-9 June 2019.

iWiS strives to encourage and empower women to take a leading role in science to drive innovation. They organize and attend events, focusing on being the catalysts for a shift in the culture of science. The organization’s objectives are to promote diversity and inclusion for greater innovation and systemic change.

The co-founders have diverse backgrounds ranging from psychology to molecular biology, complemented by experience in management, entrepreneurship, teaching, and strategic consulting.

This collaboration is the beginning of what will hopefully be a long and fruitful relationship, as Bejal Joshi is joining our Scientific Committee for the Forum, as well as the WBP Advisory Board.
