In recent years, there has been growing awareness around the diverse opportunities for those working within the health and medical research ecosystem. However, navigating transitions into new roles and organisations is still a tricky – and, at times, nerve-wracking – process.
So, we are excited to bring you a new style of Franklin Women event – a 5-part webinar series – to help with just this!
We have currated a series of webinars to support you with the skills and mindset to make your next career move, whether that be reviewing your values and understanding what makes you tick, building the confidence to act, communicating your transferable skills, and of course, negotiating the package for you!
Each webinar in the series will be delivered by an expert in the topic area. We will end the series with a panel discussion – asking representatives from non-traditional employers of women trained in health and medical research to share what they look for in an employee, ways of entering their organisations, and advice on how to put your best foot forward! You can find more information on each of the individual webinars and speakers below.
We have capped numbers to allow the webinars to be full of practical tips and interaction between attendees – so get in quick if you’re keen to join us!

Leveraging your inner confidence to achieve what you want
Wednesday 19 October, 12 – 1.15pm
Co-Author of Core Confidence and Career Coach Fiona Pearman will unpack the underlying systemic and structural drivers that have led to many women identifying a lack of self-belief and / or confidence as a major barrier to career progression. Here’s the truth, there is nothing wrong with you. Fiona will share stories, practical tools and insights that will equip you to have the inner confidence to meet any challenge and to seize opportunities as they arise.
Communicating your value proposition
Wednesday 26 October, 12 – 1.15pm
A challenge often felt by those with technical expertise whether it be clinical, academic or technology, is communicating their transferrable skills, personal attributes and overall value that they bring to a role and company. Career Transition and Executive Coach Vanessa Venning will help you create your value proposition statement which can be used on Linked In, in networking, job applications, or in interviews, so future employers are clear on who you are and what value you bring!
Wednesday 2 November, 12 – 1.15pm
Whether it be the details of the role, associated benefits or your salary package, negotiating is a critical element of securing a new role.
