Events

What sets Franklin Women apart is the incredible way we bring together women from all corners of the health and medical research ecosystem, whether it be basic research, health policy, life sciences, advocacy, and everything in between. 

Our vibrant community fosters connections that lead to amazing things – from exciting job opportunities to innovative collaborations and, importantly, meaningful friendships and support networks. 

Our events are more than just a place to nurture these relationships; they’re a chance to develop career skills beyond the technical sciences. We offer a mix of in-person and virtual events to help you navigate career shifts, have courageous conversations, develop mentoring relationships, build leadership skills, and so much more. We’d love to meet you at one soon – take a look below to find one that suits you!
