The event "is not connected to a specific company or policy, but a chance to talk directly to women in tech," said a Clinton campaign official in an email to CNBC. "We frequently send initial invitations while host committees are still being formed and locations finalized. This was never a health care event and the location wasn't set. It will not be at Theranos."
Among the other hosts of the event are Aarthi Belani, a Silicon Valley based associate at the law firm Jones Day, Nina Blackwell, executive director of the Firelight Foundation a former Senate staffer for Hillary Clinton and a former Yahoo! executive. Also on the list: Stanford Law professor Michele Dauber, Theranos general counsel and former Clinton Senate policy advisor Heather King.
