You can be the difference. Whether you’re a teacher, scientist, student or Biocom member, there are different ways you can support life science careers and education. Your generosity of time and talent will help make a lasting impact in the current and future generation of scientific leaders.
Here are a few ways you can get involved:
Boards, Committees, and Working Groups
We have a number of opportunities to get involved with workforce development. Our Biocom Institute committees meet quarterly to provide feedback and assistance for our programs and initiatives. Committee members participate on panels, write articles, assist with fundraising, and are evangelists within their companies for Biocom Institute programs and participants.
Our current committees include:
Curriculum Development working group
We work extensively with colleges and universities throughout California to develop curriculum that meets the needs of our Life Science companies. We are currently working on developing several certificate and technical skill certifications. If you have an interest in helping to shape college and university curriculum to better meet the Life Science industry contact Vicki Brannock [email protected].
Volunteer for a Day
Looking for a volunteer opportunity for yourself or your company for a day? Life ScienceXP provides member company employees an opportunity to participate in our Pre-K 12 programming. It’s easy to give back with Life ScienceXP. Through our Biocom Institute XP series programs your employees can contribute to the community through hands on experiential curriculum. Whether you are a scientist or are working in a life science company you can have an impact on our future. No experience needed.
