Dr. Fauzia Khan Participates on Panel at 2014 REHNOMA OPEN Leadership Conference

September 15, 2014

This past Saturday, September 13, Dr. Fauzia Khan, Alere Analytics’ CMO, spoke on the roundtable panel at the 2014 REHNOMA OPEN Leadership Conference at the MIT Tang Center in Cambridge, MA. REHNOMA, which stands for Respect, Empowerment, Honesty, Networking, OPEN, Mentoring, Ambition, was sponsored by the New England chapter of OPEN, the Organization of Pakistani Entrepreneurs of North America. The conference brought together Pakistani women leaders from multiple fields to discuss what it means to be a leader in today’s workplace and how to face the challenges that are still present in the corporate world for women.

“We bring together strong, dynamic, and versatile female leaders from various industries – academia, healthcare, finance, technology, and entrepreneurship — to unpack the crucial questions: What is leadership? What does it take to be a good leader? What are the struggles, challenges, and triumphs that come with being a leader? Gender limitations are still very much a limitation in corporate America — what are the issues these constructs pose and how can we work to pave the road ahead for balance in the workplace? Through thoughtful dialogue, inspiring lectures, and interactive workshops, we hope to fuel meaningful discussion and prepare future leaders for tomorrow’s professional landscape.”
