“As a woman, you have to be really strategic.”

Kristie Grover

It’s not easy for a woman in science to advance, says Kristie Grover, so don’t sit back and assume you’ll be rewarded. Instead, follow your passions and actively seek what you want.

Grover is the founder and executive director of the BIOCOM Institute, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create comprehensive education initiatives that advance science literacy and to serve as a bridge between learning institutions and life-science companies. She is the cochair of the workforce development committee and serves on the executive committee of the Coalition of State Bioscience Institutes. Grover received her B.A. in communication studies (organizational communication) from California State University, Chico. She is also a national board member of Women in BIO.
