The Life Science Women's Conference, co-founded by Patti Rossman and Steve Fiske, is an unparalleled opportunity for women to accelerate their careers in the life science field through mentoring, networking, and education. As president of the life sciences consulting firm, Globiox, headquartered in Austin, Texas, Patti knows the importance of women taking leadership roles in life sciences, thus creating the concept behind The Life Science Women's Conference.

Mentorship, networking, and education are fundamentals to climbing any career ladder and the tools acquired at this event are specifically structured for women seeking advancement. The speakers program is designed to greatly contribute to educational and professional development. Our lineup of presenters will include some of the best and brightest in their distinct field of expertise. These powerful women will be focusing on women's enlightenment, career development, leadership role, networking, mentorship, and empowerment.

The conference will span two days at the Austin Convention Center which is located in the heart of downtown Austin, Texas. Austin is known for its traditional warm Texas charm and its progressive attitude, making it an ideal host city.

Austin's progressive attitude is not the only reason it was chosen for the inaugural Life Science Women's Conference. Austin is growing as a life science leader. According to The Austin Chamber of Commerce, Austin is host to 190 life science companies with 11,000 employees. Click here for more information about Austin, Texas.
