Women in BBE (WiBBE) has invited Green Labs and one of our partners in sustainability, USA Scientific, to host a WiBBE social event March 16th! This is an amazing opportunity to meet other awesome women* in BBE, as well as learn about Green Labs and lab sustainability. USA Scientific is planning an activity to re-pot succulents into old pipette boxes! Anyone who identifies as a woman* is welcome to attend!

* We use an inclusive definition of "woman" and "female" and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women and non-binary people. We believe in supporting the many intersections of our members' identities, such as (but not limited to) race, sexual orientation, gender expression, socioeconomic class, and immigrant/indigenous status.
