UPLIFT

Unleashing the Potential Leadership & Impact of Female Talent

UPLIFT is a network to support females, and those who identify as female, at all levels.

UPLIFT was officially launched with an all-day Summit to discuss women’s professional and personal development, diversity, and leadership. Our colleague Daphney shared her thoughts on the day’s impact.

This year’s Summit was action-packed with nationally acclaimed speakers, presentations, workshops, vignettes from our employees and networking opportunities.

While attending the summit, our Chief Scientific Officer Priti Hegde discussed the importance of mentorship and the power of having a diversified team.
