Cultivating Your Network for Success Panel Discussion

Your networks, both internal and external, formal and informal, underpin a successful career strategy. Much as we might not like to admit “it’s not what you know, but who you know”, the truth is everyone needs a strong and diverse network to broaden perspectives and overcome fears. Networking is not only about the mutual exchange of ideas and experience, but also an opportunity to elevate your presence and showcase your talent.

How do you create those important relationships that will serve your career in the short and long term? Come and learn together with your peers in an interactive and engaging discussion with our experienced panel. Explore your network beyond networking. Enjoy the small group discussions. Discover the different ways you can build your network and learn tips for your next steps.


Panelists include:

 - Katherine Andersen, Head of U.S. Life Science & Healthcare Relationship Banking, Silicon Valley Bank
 - Abigail Bracha, Vice President Corporate Development and Strategy, Rubius Therapeutics
 - Lesley Chan, Senior Scientist, bluebird bio
