  • Wharton Alumnae Founders & Funders Association

  • Leaders are Disrupting the Market and Transforming Their Businesses

  • Dr. Natalie Petouoff unveils a new approach for creating a customer- and employee-centric business model that yields better long-term results in her book, “Empathy in Action”. Why are customer and employee experiences often lacking? How can you deliver experiences using Empathy in Action to garner trust and earn loyalty? And what will it take to go beyond the tired declarations that customers or employees are top priorities and actually build a workforce that believes this — and puts it into practice — every day? Rather than just give lip service to these often-misunderstood ideals, this book offers a surprising new take on how to build businesses that no longer compromise the customer and employee relationship and instead make it their highest priority.

  • Wharton Health Care Management Alumni Association

  • Wednesday, July 13th, 12 pm- 1 pm ET

  • Femtech Comes out of the Shadows: Growth Opportunities for 2025 and the Future of Gender Specific Healthcare

  • The pandemic and healthcare crises resulted in digital health taking centre stage. A positive consequence of this was the rise of female technology and more debate and discussion around gender-specific health. So far, women’s health has usually been relegated to being within the folds of reproductive health. From stroke and diabetes to prosthetic implants and mental health issues, women have long been suffering from receiving care and treatment that has been designed “for men, by men, and on men.” In the era of precision health, we need to acknowledge that it is time for women to receive gender-specific treatment and care. Featured speakers will be Suchismita Das, Healthcare and Life Sciences Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan, and Reenita Das, Healthcare and Life Sciences Partner and Senior Vice President, Frost & Sullivan.


  • Wharton School Events:
