The New England Women in Science Executives Club (NEWISE) is a peer-to-peer organization for women leaders in the science, healthcare and academic communities.

Our mission is to provide a place for these women, who are often the only women in leadership positions within their organization, to speak freely among themselves about both their professional and personal lives and to develop strong and supportive relationships with other women leaders.

Our members 
are C-level executives, successful founding entrepreneurs, partners in law firms, accounting firms, venture capital groups and other top women in life sciences, healthcare and academia.

Our monthly gatherings provide an opportunity for members to discuss their challenges, solutions and ideas – in an intimate environment, free from formal programming, competition and solicitation.

There’s a level of pressure and stress that comes with being a woman, a mother and running a business that really cannot be described without living it—much like both motherhood and leadership! Until I found the NEWISE group, there were no other places that I could just be "off" and people would "get it."

"From our perspective, the strategic importance of supporting NEWISE cannot be overstated. Rubin and Rudman LLP has many clients that are members of NEWISE. NEWISE is the only women’s organization exclusively focused on executive women leaders in the life science community. Being a board member and sponsor has been a rewarding experience for me and my firm."
-Peter B. Finn, Esq., Rubin and Rudman
"The NEWISE Club provides a unique opportunity to exchange best business practices and make new friends with women leaders in the life sciences. The membership draws not only from the Boston area and its highly concentrated biotechnology and pharmaceutical research community, but embraces members from all regions. I felt at home from the first day I joined NEWISE."
-Albine Martin, PhD, COO, Precision Biologics
"I deeply enjoy the relaxed, intelligent, and fluid conversation. Our meetings have a feeling of camaraderie that invites sharing and laughter. Sometimes the sharing has led to a fresh perspective on a familiar challenge. I love this group!"
