The medical technology industry has a gender diversity and inclusion problem – and these executives have a few ideas about how to solve it.
At DeviceTalks Minnesota 2018, a panel of experts tackled a question that has long plagued the medical device industry: How can medtech become more inclusive?
There is much work to be done, according to a 2016 survey by LeanIn.org and McKinsey & Co. Women hold 45% of entry-level positions in medtech, but just 19% of C-suite roles. The study showed that for every 100 women promoted to a managerial role, 130 men are promoted.
Janie Finn, founder & president of Finnesse Partners, hosted a conversation with Ann Anaya, chief diversity officer at 3M (NYSE:MMM), and Sophia Khan, senior director of global inclusion and diversity at Medtronic (NYSE:MDT), to discuss how the industry is evolving toward welcoming all to the table.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
