boardroomAs an integral part of the Life Science community, BioSurplus is committed to the development of an equal opportunity industry. During the recent Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) convention in San Francisco, BioSurplus National VP of Business Development and Women in Bio President-Elect Dawn Hocevar was on hand to promote the Boardroom Ready program for developing gender diversity in the biotech sector.

With the help of sponsors like LifeSci Advisors and Girls Inc., WIB is working to break systemic inequality and address the lack of women in boardrooms across the industry. By providing a five-day educational program and networking platform, the non-profit is committed to preparing more women for positions at the executive level, as well as aiming to re-educate their male peers about the value women offer when given the same opportunities.
