Worse, it is not uncommon at all to learn that women are not putting others forward for open roles they have been passed over for. It is not comfortable to initiate competition between us and others for jobs and board seats, but the likelihood that no-one wins increases when the slate of considerations is missing viable candidates. For women, competing for coveted roles is particularly challenging, because for us top level CxO and Board roles have not been in abundance. It's hard to share when one is feeling scarcity. In this session, Athena Founder and CEO Coco Brown will explore this issue with our community and discuss her thoughts and ideas for how to address this dilemma together so that everyone wins and together we all move forward.Virtual

She made a successful transition to the boardroom as a generalist—without being a subject matter expert or having specific industry expertise. One of her first boards was in engineering, and despite having no experience in the field, she went on to serve on that board for 12 years. Join us if you consider yourself a generalist and want to hear an uplifting firsthand account of how to position yourself for board service—and the value generalists bring to the boardroom.Virtual

One of only 3% of women in VC, and part of an even smaller group of women running funds, Michele is breaking the chain of exclusion by involving more women as investors, as managers, as board members, and as entrepreneurs. She will share her thoughts about how to break in, how to think about raising a fund, the different types of investors, and what states are female-friendly. Then she'll discuss the role of the fund manager, how deals are sourced, and how important the team is to the fund's success. Grounded in her personal experience helping doctors make better decisions diagnosing illness earlier and less invasively with AI and Data, she will share some personal reflections about women in this traditionally male world, and her perspective on the future healthcare landscape and the impact of technology on healthcare over the next 5-10 years.Virtual
