Dear Members and Friends,

The Women Building Bio: the XX Factor conference is like no other, and it’s upon us: next Tuesday, September 26, all day at the Inova Center for Personalized Health in Fairfax, VA. Register now!

We expect 300 women and men to attend and participate. For those of you who attended last year’s inaugural event, you know the special vibe. Attendees from across the state and region are eager to meet and learn about one another. Come make many new contacts, and plant the seed for friendships and future collaborations. There’s plenty of time built in to network.

Download the App now, and learn about the 40 outstanding women featured on the program, and see who else is already registered to attend.
Hear outstanding leaders in science, business, government, philanthropy engage in insightful discussions on recent developments and trends, and share tips on personal professional development.

A new program element this year, features several presenters whose organizations and programs enable you to plug in, get training and take action all year round. We’re featuring experts at training women for the boardroom, mentoring and accelerating your startup, making your voice known via automated mobile technology when it counts on issues that matter to you to policymakers, and designing with sex and gender in mind.

The program also features inspiring pairs of mentors/mentees share their journey, illustrating the grace and vision of the mentor and the talent of the younger generation just waiting to be nurtured and unleashed. You will be amazed.


Have some fun with us that day, too. We’ll end the day with two-hour reception in the lovely atrium. And share the event on social media as it unfolds. Last year we trended as the number two topic in Greater Washington, DC. This year let’s make it to the top! We’ve got a prize to the number one tweeter. Please use #XXfactor2017 for all your posts!
