Julie Coletti Receives Women Leaders in Life Sciences Empowerment Award

Our own Dental Platform Vice President & Global General Counsel, Julie Coletti, was the honored recipient of the American Conference Institute's 2nd Annual Women Leaders in Life Sciences Empowerment Award. The award was presented to her on July 20, 2017 in Boston at the Women Leaders in Life Sciences Conference which united nearly 200 women with a focus on comradery, substantive legal updates and advice designed to address the needs of women trying to advance and thrive in the Life Sciences fields. Each year, one exceptional participant who takes this industry to the next level with their commitment and diversity initiatives is chosen from a peer nomination and voting process to receive the Empowerment Award. This year seven finalists were identified from the nomination process. 

It comes as no surprise that Julie took this honor:
