“Women Leaders in Healthcare: Fixing the Gender Imbalance in Health Care Leadership.”

The pharma and biotech industry continues to struggle to make progress with gender diversity and still experiencing a shortage of women in leadership positions.
As reported by women, many barriers limit women’s career progression in healthcare:
• Unconscious bias against hiring and promoting women and young mothers.
• The need to be 100% qualified or overqualified before put up for a position.
• Lack of boldness to express the desire to be promoted.
Woman Leaders, such as Sara Kenkare-Mitra (PhD), SVP of development sciences at Genentech, and Kate Knobil (MD), former CMO at GlaxoSmithKline provide some guidance. They advise, “make sure that your supervisor and the people around you know where you want to go and what your ambitions are. Don’t be shy to ask for help and ask for ways to develop in the direction you want to.”
Individual companies and industry groups have come up with programs to help move women up the ladder.
JLM-Biocity invites you to our coming event where Israeli women leaders in healthcare will discuss and share the hurdles and their advice for men & women bio-professionals on how to fix the imbalance.
Kindly be advised that we ask for a 20 Shekel donation at the door.
(We are all volunteers, and this small contribution assists us to further promote JLM-Bio ecosystem).
