WHY ATTEND?

Sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and attendees who value women will form the four pillars of support and education at the Life Science Women’s Conference; all of this under one roof and available throughout the two days of the conference.

As an attendee, you will receive resources to help you discover various career opportunities, hone your skills, interface with industry-leading vendors, and network with progressive organizations. By virtue of their level of support and participation, sponsors and exhibitors demonstrate their commitment to investing in the advancement of women, like yourself and colleagues, in the life sciences.

  • Professional Development
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Career
  • Inspiration from Wonder Women
  • Life Science Updates and Hot Topics

"Even today, women and girls are frequently discouraged from pursuing a career in the sciences. Sometimes it’s just innocuous comments informed by cultural norms that discourage girls from entering a STEM field other times expectations of a perfect career and perfect family are overwhelming. The Life Science Women’s conference will showcase women in science who inspire, empower and educate girls and women to envision themselves in a STEM career and reach for new goals they previously dared not to dream of.
