Young Women In Bio (YWIB) is proud to announce the newest class of YWIB Ambassadors. This group of 24 high school students identify as female, have a passion for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and are excited to use their vision, creativity and enthusiasm to further YWIB’s efforts to inspire and encourage other young women, both in-person and online.
“We are excited to announce this diverse group of young women joining us for the 2021-2022 school year,” said Sarah Odeh, Young Women In Bio National Chair. “As we continue to expand and grow the YWIB Ambassador Program, we want to ensure we engage with young women from a broad range of backgrounds, giving them the tools and support to grow their leadership skills and empower them to bring STEM initiatives to their communities and beyond.”
Following in the footsteps of the inaugural 2020-2021 class, the YWIB Ambassadors selected to participate in the 2021-2022 school year will work with YWIB to raise awareness in STEM. They will also encourage girls locally and nationally to pursue their passion for STEM in each of the 14 YWIB chapters, creating educational and leadership opportunities.
