Awards & CelebrationsTalent & Workforce

The annual Women of Innovation® awards celebrates Connecticut women accomplished in science, technology, engineering and math and those involved in volunteer efforts within their communities. 

Join us as we celebrate the Women of Innovation who make Connecticut's businesses and institutions strong leaders on the cutting edge. The Women of Innovation event seeks to create a growing network of women in the "trenches" of STEM. Our finalists are the scientists, researchers, academics, manufacturers, student leaders, drafters, entrepreneurs, and technicians who create tomorrow's advancements through their tireless efforts today.

We are excited to honor another group of Connecticut's outstanding women for their successes in the classroom, workplace, and communities! This event is a time for like-minded, successful women to gather and celebrate their accomplishments!

Keynote Speaker

The 2019 Women of Innovation keynote speaker will be Annie Lamont, one of the nation's leading women in healthcare and  financial technology investing and current first lady of Connecticut. She is the co-founder and managing partner of Oak HC/FT, a venture capital firm that invests in early and growth stage tech-enabled companies shaping the future of healthcare information and financial services. She has more than 30 years of experience as a venture capitalist investing in transformative companies and entrepreneurs.

Lamont is well known as a leading healthcare and fintech investor, appearing on the Forbes Midas List, Institutional Investor’s FinTech Finance 40 list, and the Top 100 Venture Capitalist rankings published by CB Insights and The New York Times. She was the first recipient of the National Venture Capital Association’s award for Excellence in Healthcare Innovation.

She serves as a core participant of the Health and Human Services Deputy Secretary’s Innovation and Investment Summit (DSIIS), a collaboration between HHS and healthcare innovation and investment professionals to discuss the healthcare landscape, emerging opportunities, and the government’s role in facilitating accelerated innovation and investment. Earlier in Lamont's career, she developed a number of successful biotechs including Cephalon, ViroPharma, and Esperion.
