Life Sciences Leadership Gala

5:00 pm - 7:30 pm PDT

The first annual Life Sciences Leadership Gala is an invitation-only event that will gather the leaders who are making Washington one of the country’s most successful life science clusters. This gala, under the stars in the Atrium at 188 East Blaine, will bring together CEOs and senior executives from our top companies, founders and entrepreneurs from emerging companies, investors, and the people working with our LSW Institute to help grow the next generation of life science companies across the state. The event will include the release of a new investor report, highlights on company accomplishments, an award ceremony, a dessert reception, and ample time to network and connect with the prominent trailblazers in our community.

This must-attend event is by invitation only for CEOs and senior executives.

As the COVID-19 global pandemic continues, Life Science Washington is both cautiously optimistic and prepared to manage our in-person events with the health, safety, and well-being of our attendees, staff, presenters, sponsors, and speakers in mind. Life Science Washington expects all participants to comply with current CDC, state, and local COVID-19 related guidelines, rules, and requirements as they continue to evolve. Mask wearing is encouraged, though not required.
