As we celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on Sunday, February 11, 2024, we at OriGen Biomedical take pride in recognizing and honoring the invaluable contributions of women in the field of science and are delighted to align with this year’s theme: Innovate. Demonstrate. Elevate. Advance. Sustain. IDEAS: Bringing Everyone Forward for Sustainable and Equitable Development. This theme resonates deeply with our commitment to fostering innovation and inclusivity in the scientific realm. Join us in celebrating the remarkable women in our company who embody these ideals across various teams. This global initiative aims to promote gender equality in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and inspire the next generation of female scientists. At our company, we are fortunate to have a diverse and talented group of women driving innovation and excellence in various aspects of our operations who chose to channel their educational pursuits into STEM fields, enriching our company with their expertise and passion for science and technology.

At the helm of our organization is Beth San Segundo, a leader who exemplifies the theme by innovating strategies, demonstrating resilience, elevating the company’s profile, advancing our mission, and sustaining excellence. Her leadership sets the tone for a workplace where ideas flourish and everyone is empowered to contribute to sustainable and equitable development. Her commitment to fostering a culture of innovation and inclusivity has been pivotal in shaping the company’s success.

In the heart of our operations, our engineering team boasts talented women who bring creativity and technical prowess to developing cutting-edge medical devices. Their dedication to advancing cryopreservation technology has been instrumental in creating high-quality, single-use cryopreservation bags that meet the highest industry standards. Their inventive spirit and dedication elevate the quality of our products, ensuring they meet the highest industry standards while contributing to the sustainability of medical advancements.

The women on our quality assurance team not only demonstrate an unwavering commitment to quality but also elevate our standards by continuously pushing for excellence. Their role is instrumental in advancing our reputation for delivering reliable products that sustain the trust of our customers in the cryopreservation and cell culture market. Their attention to detail and commitment to excellence contribute to the trust our customers place in our products.

Behind the scenes, the women on our production team play a vital role in bringing our innovative products to life. Their dedication to precision and efficiency is crucial in advancing the manufacturing process and sustaining the high-quality standards that define our company. They demonstrate daily how their contributions are essential to the advancement and sustainability of our products.

Even in sales and marketing, where scientific knowledge meets customer relations, our team includes dynamic women who bridge the gap between science and practical application. Their ability to communicate the benefits of our products and understand our customers’ unique needs has been instrumental in expanding our reach and impact in the industry. 

On this particular day, we extend our heartfelt appreciation to the incredible women who contribute their skills, knowledge, and passion to the world of science. Their innovative spirit, demonstrated excellence, elevated contributions, and sustained commitment inspire us to create a future where everyone, regardless of gender, plays a pivotal role in advancing science for the betterment of all.

We also want to take a moment to acknowledge that not all women in science were able to be captured in the photo above, but their contributions are deeply valued and appreciated nonetheless.
