Women's Networking Event at AGBT 2020
This was our second year cohosting the Women's Networking Event at AGBT. This event is very dear to us, and there is a lot of enthusiasm around planning it in our organization. Here are my thoughts on this year's event where I had a great time meeting many inspiring women.
It was an evening of celebration and empowerment! Beth Shapiro, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, opened the event by reminding all of us that women in science have a lot to celebrate but also acknowledged that there are still significantly fewer women in leadership roles. Women can be strong mentors and leaders, and we all need to believe more in ourselves.
It was evident that women in science can be in various careers: researchers, teachers, organizational heads, or business leaders, amongst many other positions. There were women in power and women who are just beginning their careers in science. During the event, stories were shared of achievements, inspiration, and perseverance. Connections were made. We chatted about science, business, families, and challenges as we sipped champagne. We were all connected by our passion for science and our beliefs in the empowerment of women.
I was proud to represent Takara Bio, a company that promotes and supports women in science.
