Lessons from Leaders: opportunities across the health & medical research sector

This FW breakfast event is all about supporting women in our field to identify, enter and thrive in roles in organisations not traditionally considered by academic researches. To help us do this we have brought together an amazing line up of leaders of diverse organisations in the health and medical research sector who will each join a breakfast table as its ‘Table Leader’. This will provide a unique opportunity to chat with them informally about the opportunities for technical trained professionals in their organisations, what non-technical skills are valued in these roles and lessons learnt after navigating their own journey to leadership.

Lessons from Leaders panel members

Four of our Table Leaders, Annette Schmiede, Dom Tilden, Kathy Refshuage and Sarah Neville, will take part in a facilitated panel discussion which we are sure will identify many common skills and values that are transferrable between roles in and outside of academia. We have planned for the event to be as practical as possible so we have left lots of time for discussion and networking so you can connect with our Table Leaders and the other amazing women in the room. And, of course, a delicious breakfast. 


Table Leaders


We are excited to welcome leaders from reputable organisations across the health and medical research sector, from consulting and industry to academic and government. Take the time to look at their Linked In profiles and organisation websites to get a taste of the insights and inspirations to come!
