The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is #BalanceforBetter. The campaign aims to reinforce the need for gender-balanced organizations and communities.
At last year’s JP Morgan Healthcare Conference, two industry journalists pointed out that the number of men named Michael outnumbered female CEOs presenting at the conference. As of 2018, women hold 20% of leadership positions in biotech C-suites and 10% of board of director seats.
At Govzilla, we’re proud to say that 100% of our industry experts are women. We’re fortunate to have their expertise and experience on the team to help us develop and improve our platform, write articles for our blog, and so much more.
