The Black Women in Science (BWiS) Network is a community for women of African and Caribbean heritage in various stages of their scientific careers.


Black women face pressures both within and outside the workplace. BWiS Network provides a safe space in which black women can come and ask/give advice and seek support in their careers. The BWiS Network believes that everyone should be encouraged to pursue careers of their choice and wants to make sure that our members feel equipped to do so.

BWiS Network is keen to impact legislation and influence change in the STEM industry so that black women feel comfortable and supported in their careers.
