2nd Annual Networking Night

Hello bioengineering undergraduates, graduates, and post-docs! 

Gender Minorities in Bioengineering (GMBE) at UCSD is excited to announce that we will be hosting our second annual Networking Night on Friday, March 3rd from 5-7pm. We hope to bring together over a 100 Bio-E students, faculty members, and industry professionals who identify as women or other marginalized genders to expand their professional networks. Through this event, GMBE is trying to improve the bioengineering field by connecting women and members of gender minorities with local industries and academic professionals. 

Our Networking Night would give you the chance to build personal relationships with highly motivated and skilled UCSD students and postdocs. If you’re interested, our event is also facilitating a mentorship program that pairs you with a student you connected with at the event. 

The event will be in-person at the UCSD Stage Room. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be provided! Please RSVP and reserve a ticket for “Student” by February 17th. Space is limited!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please note this event is for those who identify as women or another gender minority in bioengineering/biotechnology.

Women in STEM News


We are kicking off black history month by introducing our new blog, “Spotlight,” where we discuss a new women or other-gendered role model in bioengineering every month. Representation is important! These women prove that their unique backgrounds lend strength to their personal developments and progress in bioengineering. Looking for more role models this month? Check out this great list of 50 Black Women in STEM you should know about!


The UCSD Bioengineering Career Fair is Friday Feb 11, 2022 from 9am-12pm. If you are seeking current of future hiring opportunities, attend this evet to network with industry professionals. See the flyer here to register. You must register to receive further information about the event!


The Global Women in STEM Leadership Summit will be held in Atlanta, GA this year from June 6-7. Women leaders will share their knowledge on how to succeed in their fields through speeches, chats, and workshops. Register here.
