The HBA St. Louis Women in Science (WIS) affinity group held its first networking event at Washington University Medical School on 11 October 2018. The event included a prestigious panel of six women leaders in the healthcare industry who fully engaged the attendees. They shared their professional journeys, held small group collaborative break-out sessions and interacted through one-on-one discussions and networking.
The event was a great opportunity for informal open dialogue and Q&A which created a room of enrichment and development by all those that attended. “We all left with our own nuggets of learning or advice to put into action. A few in summary; help lift one another up within the workforce via networking and other activities, create your network of mentors and sponsors, follow your passions in life, trust your instincts and collaborate well with others.” -Elaine Ladd, HBA St. Louis Women in Science affinity group chair
