Sustainability Project

All BWIS 2018 members integrated into the BWIS fellowship programme are required to establish a sustainable community or business group project. Further details will be provided to our  BWIS fellows (BWISF) at events, via emails and through exclusive videos.

Business Project

How the project works

In groups of a minimum of four members, the Black Women in Science fellows (BWISF) are asked to develop a scientifically innovative idea which they will implement in their careers. They develop a business plan which will indicate how projects will be implemented. The business plan will address questions on sustainability of business, potential investors and profits to name a few.

Aim

To create a mindset of implementing science innovation in the real world context

Social Project

How the project works

The Black Women in Science fellows (BWISF) will develop a social-entrepreneurship project in groups of a minimum of four BWISF. Fellows are asked to identify a social need in Africa and develop a solution to address this need. A proposal will be submitted which will address the benefits to the community, potential investors and deliverables to name a few.

Aim

This project is aimed to develop community development and business skills in our scientist. In Addition, it aims to develop a “giving-back” mindset
