M&M’s Hall of Femme and Women to Watch programs honor standout healthcare executives at biopharma companies, medical device/diagnostics firms and healthcare marketing/communications/media professionals. 

This year, we selected 18 women to honor in each category. The 36 standout women will be recognized at the MM&M Hall of Femme dinner on June 2 in NYC. On June 3, we will host the MM&M Hall of Femme Collective, a morning of content geared towards junior to mid-level executives. Visit the MM&M Hall of Femme website for more information or to purchase tickets to these events.

“This year I’m especially excited by the variance in our list of nominees. We have scientists, researchers, communicators, creatives, marketers and more. It’s an amazing compilation of women all working towards the same goal of advancing healthcare. I truly cannot wait for this event,” said Haymarket Studio’s senior manager and MM&M Hall of Femme host Kara Giannecchini.
