5th Floor, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA

Join us for a lively discussion with Gesa Kirsch and Suzie Rawden about what we can learn from early women physicians, innovators, and women’s rights activists. Focusing on the legacy of Dr. Mary Bennett Ritter (Stanford MD, class of 1886), the discussion will focus on what innovators can learn from strong, bold, and determined women about passion and commitment, overcoming gender stereotypes, financing and fundraising, innovation, research and development, pitching, and the power of professional networks. Drawing on Kirsch’s recent publication, More Than Gold in California, this panel addresses contemporary issues such as working toward equality, engaging in civic leadership, and promoting a greater common good.
