The Life Science Women's Conference, co-founded by Patti Rossman and Steve Fiske, is an unparalleled opportunity for women to accelerate their careers in the life science field through mentoring, networking, and education. As president of the life sciences consulting firm, Globiox, headquartered in Austin, Texas, Patti knows the importance of women taking leadership roles in life sciences, thus creating the concept behind The Life Science Women's Conference.

Mentorship, networking, and education are fundamentals to climbing any career ladder and the tools acquired at this event are specifically structured for women seeking advancement. The speakers program is designed to greatly contribute to educational and professional development. Our lineup of presenters will include some of the best and brightest in their distinct field of expertise.
