Career Possibilities: New Commercial Strategy, Product Planning, and Marketing

In the world of business, careers are no longer linear or predictable. What was once a clearly sign-posted path as you progressed through milestones, a career road map is now circuitous presenting new challenges and opportunities at every bend. Life-long careers in one sector or one company are becoming a rarity as new technologies and shifting social norms disrupt traditional careers. Both employers and employees are seeking more diversity of experience, lifestyle flexibility and alternative paths.
This panel is designed to help you think about your career path and the different options that are open to you. The panel will have an informational interview type feel with panelists sharing their career paths, a look at what their job entails, transferrable skills for those looking to make a change, tips for uncovering opportunities, advice for others, and how to make brave leaps. This panel discussion will be moderated by Alicja Winiarska Januszewicz, Head of People & Culture at Allena Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Panelists include
- Andrea Ashford-Hicks, SVP, Platform Head for T-Cell Generation, Enzyvant
- Genie Dubuk, Sr. Director, Brand Management, Alnylam Pharmaceuticals
