2020 marks WIB-Pittsburgh’s seventh annual P.O.W.E.R. event. What originated as an event for entrepreneurs to pitch their innovations to women-led investment groups has become a celebration of women in the Pittsburgh region that have significantly contributed to the local entrepreneurial ecosystem. Previous P.O.W.E.R. events have showcased women in the areas of digital health, precision medicine, immunotherapy, and empowering women to protect women.

This year, our panel of women speakers fits into the Pittsburgh entrepreneurial ecosystem with expertise in medical communication, precision medicine, business planning, patient safety, and clinical research. We will hear a little bit about how they arrived at their current role and how they have navigated and contributed to the health innovation continuum. After the main program, attendees will have the opportunity to join breakout rooms with the speakers for more detailed conversations.

We will also be presenting the P.O.W.E.R. award which we use to recognize life sciences women in transformative roles. Recipients of this honor have made significant contributions within the Pittsburgh region. They have achieved the highest level of professional excellence in life sciences and are committed to promoting careers, leadership, and entrepreneurship for women in the life sciences.
