Bio Diversity Networking Event

On Thursday, April 11, 2019, the Color of Biotech Massachusetts will partner with the Initiative for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at BUSM’s Graduate Medical Sciences, BU BEST and the Boston Medical Center Office for Minority Physician Recruitment to host a “Bio Diversity Networking Event” from 6 PM – 9 PM in the Hiebert Lounge.

The event will present a unique opportunity for the BUSM community, particularly those from underrepresented minority groups, to network with industry professionals from across the city’s pharmaceutical and biotechnology fields. Through this event, the initiative for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion hopes to demonstrate our shared commitment to supporting a diverse biomedical workforce by providing a platform for students, trainees, faculty and external groups to exchange ideas and information in a diverse setting.

The evening will also include a brief panel discussion entitled “From Bench to Bedside: The Broader Impact of Research & Industry for Underserved Communities”. The goal of the panel is to spark dialogue and an exchange of ideas at the intersection of academia and pharma. Through an interactive conversation, the panel will explore unique perspectives related to health disparities in underrepresented and underserved communities.
