OUTbio: Greater New York is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded in 2022 and is focused on advancing this mission in the Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York regions.
OUTbio: Greater New York is one of the independent branches of OUTbio Inc., an organization that began operations as the “LGBTQ+ Drug Development Meet-Up Group” in Boston in 2015. Additional branch OUTbio organizations have been created in several other locations. All of these branches share a similar mission as OUTbio: Greater New York. These OUTbio branches include:
To inquire about joining or getting involved in sponsoring or volunteering with any of our branches please reach out via our websites or emails – we would love to have you on board.
A note on the OUTbio structure: Given the limited resources available to the original OUTbio, Inc., a decision was made early on to allow OUTbio groups outside of OUTbio, Inc. to operate independently. That is, branches such as the above can all incorporate and operate independently as their own entity with a license to the OUTbio name and create opportunities to advance our global community through knowledge and network sharing. All these organizations are referred to as “branches” of OUTbio. These branches will be aligned with the mission and vision of OUTbio, Inc. but will remain independent and maintain their own Steering Committees and/or Boards of Directors.
