The NGBL forum allows high potential women leaders to learn from and network with executives from leading pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology companies. Seminars, discussions and speakers provide strategic perspectives in critical management and operational areas, including finance, supply chain, research and development, commercialization, and more.

- The brave new Biotech Century Leader -human assets, leadership strategies and teams, global resources and challenges, partnering strategies
- Mapping your future in the industry - career imprinting, "glass ceiling" lessons learned, strategies for leadership, and trends in compensation
