Next week Pittsburgh’s Outstanding Women Entrepreneurs Rally (P.O.W.E.R.) will host a conference promoting leadership for women in life sciences. Susan Catalano, chapter chair of Women in Bio Pittsburgh, and Rebecca Harris, director of the Center for Women’s Entrepreneurship at Chatham University, talk about the economic breakthroughs that are being made by women in these fields.

Harris explains that bio sciences, which include fields like biochemistry and botany, is a booming field, and although women still aren’t represented much in its leadership positions, they are making inroads in the field.

Catalano emphasizes that the P.O.W.E.R conference, to be held September 22, will be the first of its kind in the Pittsburgh region.
