Women in Biotech Symposium-Friday, September 18th

RDI_womeninbiotechLocation: Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University
Time: 1-5pm

Why are women underrepresented as leaders in the biotech industry?

It’s a perplexing issue, which warrants examination and discussion. Bringing together scientists, industry and venture capital leaders, and academics, this symposium will explore the divide between the large number of women who pursue advanced degrees in related scientific fields and their representation in leadership positions in biotech firms. Speakers will also share new research, experimentation, and promising models that may help industry, universities, government, and private capital improve the current system. Join us to gain a deeper understanding into this situation.

Register online and view the full schedule: www.radcliffe.harvard.edu/event/2015-women-in-biotech-symposium

The event is free and open to the public.
