HBA San Diego is passionate about providing a “lift while you climb” environment for all our members. We are a broadly diverse chapter in terms of career function and experience and providing an inclusive, supportive and caring atmosphere for members from early through later stage career development. The personality and characteristics of our chapter leaders is directly reflective of our membership – diverse in experience and ethnicity but similar in inclusive, welcoming character. HBA San Diego desires to be the “go to” organization for providing leadership development and networking opportunities for life science professionals.
The San Diego life-sciences community is a diverse mixture of:
- locally based biotechnology companies, including a robust start-up community
- research centers for global pharmaceutical companies
- science-based academic institutions
- healthcare provider organizations
To address this broad constituency, HBA San Diego plans to develop affinity programming for both Women in Science and Entrepreneurs.
