Keynote Address with Katherine Stueland, Chief Commercial Officer of Invitae
While women continue to be some of the most important decision makers in personal healthcare, there is a massive gap in female leadership in the healthcare industry. Why is this important and how do we affect change to make room for more women to influence the business of health? It involves a seismic shift in thinking among business leaders and investors, but the starting point lies within each one of us and relies on our ability to bridge the gap between our personal and professional experiences to craft a new vision for what healthcare can be for us, our families, friends and communities.
