It’s not always easy to be a women in field traditionally dominated by men, but four female leaders in science industry gathered at Quorum yesterday to offer their perspective on how to be successful in the field.
Merck senior director of licensing and external research Susan Rohrer, Adaptimmune vice president Gwendolyn Binder-Scholl, NuPathe CEO Jane Hollingswoth, and Drexel University senior vice provost for research Deborah Crawford joined moderator Sandy Pfeffer, a director at Deloitte & Touche, to participate in the Smart Talk Q&A as part of Philly Tech Week and the Philadelphia Science Festival events.
The women responded to questions from Pfeffer as well as a crowd of about 50 people, who came to the University City Science Center’s community meeting space to network and interact with the panel. Questions ranged from what it’s like to work in a male-dominated environment to how to get more young people involved in the sciences.
Below watch video of the four women introducing themselves and explaining how they each became interested in science.
