This blog post I wanted to do something a bit different and ‘feature’ some fellow students to show prospective sudents what is going on around Karolinska campus. Ultimately this led me to ask my fellow classmates could I interview them regarding an exciting event happening this Thursday the 25th in the Aula Medica at 4pm- the event is all about leadership within Lifescience where, particularly women whom have made huge achievements within this sphere will come and talk about their experiences within this industry as well how to overcome challenges which they have faced and how to ultimately become a leader and hopefully motivate others to follow.
What is great too is that they have managed to get such big name companies such as IMS Health,BCG & Astrazenica among others to come for a mingle as well as including the KI career service and CHASE the new career fair initiative which is coming up so it should also help with networking also.
The girls all come from the business committee but through this initiative applied and were subsequently accepted to Harvard Undergraduate Women in Business. It has taken months for them to get this far and I wanted to give them an opportunity to express their thoughts on the process, the event and whats to come.
Hopefully this Vlog will enlighten and interest many on this event and give an insight into this extra curricular activity. Who knows, maybe you will be organizing something like this yourself next year.
Volunteers are still being taken for the event so feel free to contact any of these members through the official Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/lswil
