“Our 2nd annual Women’s Leadership Conference is intended to educate, energize and engage female O&P practitioners,” said Karen Edwards, Director, Össur Women’s Leadership Initiative (ÖWLI). “Now more than ever, our company embraces the strength of diversity and the importance of women’s leadership as the face of the O&P field continues changing. We believe supporting these changes will ultimately benefit both patients as well as the profession as a whole.”

Through its Women’s Leadership Initiative (ÖWLI), Össur provides ongoing career and leadership development resources for O&P professionals, including access to regular webinars, blog postings, and the Women’s Leadership Conference. According to Edwards, more than two dozen O&P professionals attended the inaugural Össur Women’s Leadership Conference last year, where they had the opportunity to interact with inspiring speakers, share ideas, and professionally network.

Registration for the 2017 Össur Women’s Leadership Conference is $50 per person and space is limited, so interested individuals should register as soon as possible.
