International Women's Day
With the world celebrating International Women’s Day, we take a look at women in pharma.
Despite being set to become Big Pharma’s first female CEO, Emma Walmsley at GSK doesn’t see her gender as a major issue: ‘I’ve never primarily defined myself by my gender. I’ve been lucky enough to always work for companies or in countries where being female hasn’t limited or restricted me.’
However, the numbers suggest there is still some way to go before equality in pharma. Prior to Walmsley’s appointment, none of the world’s top 25 drugmakers were led by a woman, and less than 3% of new pharma CEO positions globally were given to women in 2015.
At Boston Biotech Week last year we spoke to President and CEO of Biomedical Growth Strategies Susan Windham-Bannister about the lack of gender diversity in Life Sciences and why organizations should be trying to improve.
