The Association for Women in Science (AWIS), in partnership with the University of California, HBA, and the California Life Sciences Association, is pleased to host a national dialogue on gender at the nexus of innovation and entrepreneurship with experts from industry, academia, and government.  Building upon our inaugural Summit which was held in partnership with The Ohio State University, this meeting will focus on how we, as a society, can develop inclusive, fiscally-responsive systems to drive research excellence, feed long-term economic growth, and fuel innovative solutions to global challenges facing all our citizens. Janet Napolitano, President of the University of California, will serve as the keynote speaker.

By understanding and embracing an expanded model of entrepreneurship that takes into account the experiences, motivations, and developmental needs of both gender, we can enhance innovation across multiple work platforms.  As part of a series that will take place across the country, information from the Summit will be utilized to inform elected officials and federal agencies on the need for policy changes relating to gender to remain globally competitive.
