For the past 9 years, the Connecting Women Lunch has provided the opportunity to highlight and celebrate the achievements of women in the biotechnology, medical technology and pharmaceutical sector in Victoria. Guests come together to support, inspire and encourage each other to strive for leadership roles in the healthcare innovation sector.
On Friday 25th May, we’ll be hosting the 10th occurrence of what has become the biggest celebration of women in the biotechnology, medical technology and pharmaceutical industry in Australia.
To mark the occasion, we welcome all genders to attend this year’s lunch and encourage you to register employees and colleagues who are supporters of women in the workplace, role models and or champions of gender equity in the sector, particularly at leadership levels.
For this year’s bigger and more inclusive celebration, we are returning to the venue that hosted the very first Connecting Women Lunch in 2009 – the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins!
The BioMelbourne Network Connecting Women Lunch provides a powerful platform for networking and exploring mentorship opportunities – join us for the 10th celebration of this memorable and motivating event.
