We want to see an international biomechanics community that respects, values and promotes gender equity.

The mission of the International Women in Biomechanics (IWB) group is to foster an environment for women and underrepresented genders in biomechanics to gain support, visibility, and allyship.






We offer a variety of programs and services in each of our pillars, including an online community platform, numerous networking events, and opportunities to highlight members' science. We also actively promote gender equity and diversity within the field of biomechanics
