Late in 2018, the HBA convened the industry’s first consortium of prominent healthcare and life science companies to work together to improve the systemic and environmental issues hampering gender parity progress in the workplace.
Core to the Collaborative’s vision is the access and integration of critical metrics—via the Women in the Workplace survey by McKinsey & Company and LeanIn.org—that will enable us to set future benchmarks, guide prioritization and demonstrate results. Based on the 2018 survey, we are encouraged that women in the healthcare industry fare slightly better in advancing up the ladder than they do in other industries. However, there is a long way to go before we achieve or even get closer to true gender parity.
The HBA and the Gender Parity Collaborative invite companies to join us in this game-changing initiative. Join us in the formation of impactful solutions. Join us in the conversation on our new LinkedIn page.
