Diversity & Inclusion in Pharma: Industry Leaders Bring Conversation to Forefront (presented by Women in Pharma)

  • Leigh Fultz, Chief People Officer, FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies
  • Natacha Janvier, Membership Director, NCBIO – The NC Biosciences Organization

Moderated by Courtney Skunda Hall, BE&K Building Group

  • An expanding body of research and mounting evidence consistently finds that more diverse and inclusive workplaces see deeper employee commitment, higher levels of innovation, improved hiring quality, greater rates of employee retention, and increased profits. Despite these benefits, there is a well-documented imbalance between the demographics of the United States’ population and that of its corporate leadership and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce. In a nation that relies on technical talent to drive innovation and to compete globally, this lack of inclusion and engagement represents not only an economic concern, but also a societal challenge. How is the pharma industry doing and how can we do better?

Time: 4:00 pm-5:00 pm EST
