Please join us for our annual Foundation Breakfast for a lively, in-person discussion focusing on what McKinsey describes as the growing FemTech revolution. Here, we will examine concepts of FemTech – the technology, tools, and resources to support women’s and AFAB (assigned female at birth) individuals’ health. Topics will range from maternal care, prenatal health, menopause, and mental health – as well as through an intersectional lens of race and socioeconomic status. We also will provide resources on bridging the disparity gap and showcase startup companies working in FemTech.

Our FemTech experts will discuss topics including:

  • Future landscape (and trends) in maternal health technology
  • Racial and socioeconomic disparities in women’s and AFAB individuals’ health, its impact on the community, and ways to address and combat these disparities
  • Considerations and best practices employers should explore when creating maternal and paternal health benefits

Our expert panel:

  • Moderator: Evan Thornburg, Health Equity Special Advisor, City of Philadelphia
  • Jen Arches, Senior Director of Global Benefits, Comcast
  • Kate Hermans, Board Member/CEO & Founder, Hermans International LLC
  • Julia Kastner, Chief Product Officer, NeuroFlow
Presenting companies:
  • Tracey Welson- Rossman, Journal My Health
  • Sheilisa McNeal, Co-Founder and CEO, MyFria
  • Mihir Shah, Founder CEO, UE Life Siences
