HBA’s Building Better Business Connections (3BC) program brings executive leaders together to form a community with the common purpose of accelerating the business value of women leaders in the healthcare and life sciences industry. Each summit is highly interactive and brings diverse industry voices together to create engaging and effective dialogue. This program is offered exclusively to HBA Corporate Partner organizations and is one of the top-rated package offerings.
3BC holds at least one executive summit per year. Summits are focused on individual and organizational transformation opportunities which help companies realize the full potential of the female talent pipeline and advance the impact and influence of that pipeline across the industry.
The topic/focus for the summit varies year to year based on current industry issues and is determined by the 3BC event chair(s) and HBA senior staff. Sessions are facilitated by an industry leader, a recognized though leader and/or a professional subject matter expert. The content brings forth best practices and practical innovations more so than academics and theory.
