Caltech Women in Biology and Biological Engineering

Art Campaign to Rename Buildings

Update January 2021

Since we started our art campaign, WiBBE has documented multiple incidents in which copies of the art put up around campus were torn down. We are committed to reinstalling the art throughout the  campus, and we renew our call for Caltech to rename all campus buildings named after eugenicists and racists. To those responsible for the destruction, consider what your actions say about your priorities. To members of our community harmed by these actions, WiBBE continues to stand in solidarity with you

Our Mission

The Caltech Women in Biology and Biological Engineering group (WiBBE) is a supportive community of women within the division that seeks to connect members across all stages in career and walks of life with resources for personal and professional growth. We achieve this by promoting professional development, mentorship, gender-related issue advocacy, and networking.

We use an inclusive definition of "woman" and "female" and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women and non-binary people. We believe in supporting the many intersections of our members' identities, such as (but not limited to) race, sexual orientation, gender expression, socioeconomic class, and immigrant/indigenous status.

We also host regular social events, to which all members of the Caltech community are invited!
