In addition to her successful career in the entertainment industry, Davis has also been involved in advocacy work, including narrating the diabetes-focused documentary "A Touch of Sugar."

"I've come to understand the profound importance of resilience in my journey as an entrepreneur in the entertainment industry," said Davis. "Through facing adversity head on and persevering, I've learned invaluable life lessons that I believe those in the biotech community can relate to. It is through such tenacity that we forge our respective paths to success."

The discussion will be moderated by former CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin, who is also known for her bestselling book "Huddle: How Women Unlock Their Collective Power." In this book, she redefines the word 'huddle' to explore how women support each other and empower one another to enact meaningful change. Baldwin recently published a powerful essay titled "Leaving CNN Was How I Found My Voice" in Vanity Fair.

The BIO International Convention is the largest global event for the biotech industry, bringing together over 18,000 leaders in the research and development of innovative healthcare, agricultural, industrial, and environmental biotechnology products. The convention will take place at the San Diego Convention Center from June 3 – 6, 2024.
