A networking initiative is striving to better harness the role of women in building a strong global bioeconomy.
Innovators Magazine has a feature on the Bioladies Network in our upcoming special edition on biotechnology, which will be out later this week. The organisation’s Iris Aquilina Anderson writes on the importance and opportunities there are for women working in the bioeconomy to properly network with their peers.
She said: “The Bioladies Network offers women working in the bioeconomy a valuable forum not only to expand professional contacts, but also an environment to foster peer support and informal mentoring. This network is unique in that it aims to support women, in the UK, EU and internationally, in an emerging area of the economy that is still considered niche, despite the potential. Women from diverse sectors are welcome to join the network. Professionals from academia, public sector, NGOs, R&D, outreach and consultancy are amongst those who are members. Industries represented include agriculture, food, construction, packaging and biopesticides. “
