KGI and Smith College decided to host the forum again following the success last year's inaugural event. According to Diana Bartlett, KGI's director of corporate partnerships, the turnout for the January 2008 forum "was very gratifying."

Bartlett added: "Most of our NGBL attendees held doctorate degrees. Our scholars represented 18 life science companies, including biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical device, agricultural biotech, and research tools firms."

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 2009 curriculum will address ways companies can improve and will emphasize new skill creation. The scheduled curriculum includes:

  • The DNA of biotech organizations - business models, organizational change, regulatory affairs, product life cycle
  • The brave new Biotech Century Leader -human assets, leadership strategies and teams, global resources and challenges, partnering strategies
  • Mapping your future in the indus
