Johnson & Johnson was one of only six companies to have two of its female executives selected for Fortune’s list of the Most Powerful Women. Sandi Peterson, Worldwide Group Chair, who was featured in an Up-Close Conversation at the 2015 AWESOME Symposium hosted by J&J, made the list as did Jennifer Taubert, Company Group Chairman, Pharmaceuticals.
The Up-Close Conversation is a signature element of the annual AWESOME Symposium, giving participants a chance to hear the candid views and insights of outstanding women leaders. In addition to being 2015 Host Sponsor, J&J was a 2017 Fifth Anniversary Sponsor and is a Champion for the 2018 Symposium.
