A full day of informative breakout sessions and inspirational speakers that recognize the accomplishments of those helping make a difference here in our local community.
The ATHENA Award is a prestigious national award presented to an active member of the Salt Lake Chamber who demonstrates excellence, creativity and initiative in business. They must also provide valuable service by devoting time and energy to improve the quality of life for others in the community and assist women in reaching their full leadership potential.
In addition to the Athena Award, five other women will receive the Pathfinder Award. This award is given to community leaders who “create new paths” and promote the development and recognition of women in business.
All proceeds will benefit the Salt Lake Chamber Women’s Business Center.
Join us as we celebrate extraordinary leaders in Utah’s Business Community at one of the nation’s longest running women’s conferences.

In his 2015 State of the Union address, President Obama announced plans for the largest genomic study in history: the Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI). Then in 2016, he announced another major national initiative to accelerate cancer research and appointed Vice President Joe Biden to the helm of the Cancer Moonshot. With a cohort of one million Americans, the PMI promises to increase our understanding of the genetic basis of disease and forge the way for new diagnostic and therapeutic innovations. The technology to undertake these monumental projects exist today; however, many scientific, legal, economic, and ethical questions about the PMI and the practice of precision oncology remain unanswered. This one and a half day symposium at the University of Utah will host leading national experts in precision oncology, bioinformatics, equity, policy, and laboratory testing who are tackling the major questions raised by precision medicine, the PMI, and the Cancer Moonshot.
