Women in Leadership Event Includes Accomplished Genentech Professional

Hazel Blackhart (JD ’08), a GGU alumnae and Product Manager at Genentech, will be a panelist at the 5th Annual Women in Leadership event in October at GGU.

A biotechnology professional for over 14 years, Blackhart’s experience includes strategic partnerships, operations, patient advocacy, communications and people engagement. Her strengths are in the areas of teamwork & collaboration, leading & influencing, and drive for results.

Blackhart has held various legal positions at Genentech including Head of Global Product Strategy and Global Medical Affairs, Contracts. She was also a member of the company’s Intellectual Property law group.

In anticipation of the Women in Leadership event, we asked her what single piece of advice she would give to women in business. She says:

My one piece of advice to a woman entering a new career or extending her career would be to consider your areas of strength—balanced by the areas you want a challenge in. The right role for me has always been one in which I could leverage my areas of strength as a solid foundation with the opportunity to stretch, grow, and learn. Finding this right balance can be tricky and can take time, but it will set you up for success in the long run!
