What we're about

Mission Statement

The Boston-area Women in Bioinformatics Meetup is a group committed to supporting women in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics, data science and informatics. We aim to facilitate a community-driven approach to empowering and encouraging all women in the field, through regular meetings, networking events and workshops.

While the focus of this group is on the advancement and support of women, all gender identities are encouraged to join us at meetups. We strive to be an inclusive and diverse space. Our goal is to connect the community-at-large by enabling sharing of technical skills, networks and professional (“soft”) skills. Meetings will address some issues that are specific to women in the field but we will also have meetings that would be of more general interest. We will enable women, people from underrepresented groups and allies to share work through presentations.

Code of Conduct

This meetup group is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. Anyone violating these rules may be sanctioned or banned from attending at the discretion of the conference organizers. Please contact the organizers through here if you feel someone has broken the code of conduct.
