    Finding Your Niche for Career Success, A Presentation by Amy Bergen

    5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.San Diego, CA

    Forging a successful career path requires clarity, courage, strength, and negotiation. In today’s rapidly changing world of work, the idea of the traditional career ladder is near extinction. Effective career navigation is now thought of as a mosaic of intentional experiences that foster learning, development, visibility, and professional fulfillment. Seeking career development opportunities both internally and externally will not only help you get to your ideal role but can simultaneously maximize your impact on the organization. Join us for an engaging session lead by Amy Bergen, Vice President of Business Development at The Leadership Edge, where we will explore how identifying your skills and talents, and combining these with your goals and aspirations, can map your path for long-term success.

    The Leadership Edge is passionate about creating a more robust pipeline of female leaders within the life sciences and supporting gender diversity at the executive and board levels. Over the past three decades, they have had the unique privilege of working with over 5,000 board members, executives, and scientific leaders to dramatically improve the performance, pace, and culture of the most dynamic and innovative pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies in the country. Female leaders bring unique perspectives, skills, and competencies to the workplace. They also have unique challenges and professional development needs. The Leadership Edge recognizes this and has recently expanded their development offerings to include a new Leadership EDGE for Women program to address the greatest needs and challenges faced by both emerging and existing female leaders today.

    Speaker Biography

    Amy Bergen has dedicated the last decade of her career to supporting leaders in life sciences. As Vice President of Business Development for The Leadership Edge, Amy expertly connects life science organizations to professional development for their managers, leaders, and teams. With nearly three decades of experience empowering over 5,000 executives to reach their highest leadership potential, The Leadership Edge has proven to be an invaluable resource to the life science community. Amy has been instrumental in creating a new program, Leadership EDGE for Women, which was designed to create a more robust pipeline of female leaders within the industry and support gender diversity at the executive and board levels.

    Prior to joining The Leadership Edge, Amy served as the Executive Director of Athena, where she was instrumental in the organization’s successful transition from UCSD to an independent nonprofit organization. Through rich and diverse programming, mentoring, and networking, she connected over 500 dynamic women seeking advancement opportunities in life sciences and technology. Through wide-ranging relationships and partnerships, she recruited 300+ executives to lead voluntary, yet critical, roles for the organization including the Board of Directors, committee chairs and members, mentors, facilitators, and speakers. Each of these opportunities provided valuable leadership development for aspiring and established female leaders. Amy was also a key driver of initiating a new one-on-one mentoring program, a unique offering designed to foster meaningful connections and valuable career advancement.
