2022-23 Seminar Series

The Women's Innovation Network seminars help attendees build skills to navigate gender-based barriers to launching and sustaining businesses and to bringing research to market.

Our seminars are hands-on learning opportunities to explore and discover with a caring community. Seminars are presented by leaders in company formation, fundraising, business pitches, grant writing, rhetoric and pragmatics, and public-private partnerships.

The Women's Innovation Network is a joint initiative between the University of Oregon and Onward Eugene. Our 2022-23 seminar series is sponsored by Klarquist Sparkman, LLP.

A Note About Gender: We intend for the words "women" and "woman" to include anyone who identifies with the word. We recognize that gender is a broad spectrum, and we aim to celebrate everyone on this spectrum. We always welcome allies and accomplices to join us.

That's a Wrap!

We've finished our seminar series for 2022-23 and will post our 2023-24 seminars soon.
