When: August 17, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM EDT
Diversity and Inclusion in STEM: A Leadership Initiative
As an industry, STEM has a diversity issue, and this can only be addressed by developing leadership and mentoring skills within life sciences companies. To build more inclusive companies in the life sciences industry, The Pistoia Alliance initiated the Women in STEM pilot program and has since applied the lessons learned to move on to develop the Diversity and Inclusion in STEM Leadership program. The goal of this program is to develop leadership and mentoring skills in diverse leaders at life science companies, enabling them to support, initiate, and/or lead diversity efforts at their respective organizations.
This session will provide an update on the project and highlight how the industry’s diversity problem can be solved from within and will offer advice on how current and aspiring lab leaders can implement similar programs within their own organizations. Learn about the unique challenges faced by women in STEM positions, and how diversity and inclusion programs can help bridge the gap.
