Increasing the Prominence of Women in the Life Sciences Legal Community through Substantive Legal Discussion, Professional Development, and Woman-to-Woman Networking.

  Each year, nearly 200 professionals attend this annual event specifically designed for women life sciences practitioners to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing women in this industry, as well as to foster communication between like-minded individuals about the key legal developments for pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device companies in the life sciences world. Over the past year, there has been a huge movement across the country and across all industries to ensure women are treated equally in the workplace, highlighted in the media by the Time’s Up movement and #metoo. This year’s program brings together a speaker faculty full of truly inspirational women, coming together to lead you through two days of of-the-moment discussions, substantive legal updates, and concrete tools you can implement immediately. Advice and strategies abound at this one-of-a-kind conference designed specifically to address the needs of women trying to advance and thrive in the Life Sciences field.
