Our BioTalent community came together for our ‘Developing a Career in Quality within life sciences’ webinar, hosted by our very own Quality specialist, Darren O'Connor, and a panel of market-leading experts.
The discussions explored why Quality is so important within the Life Sciences industry and what a Quality mindset means to them. We touched on what academic institutions can be doing better to help Quality professionals thrive, highlighting that perhaps the pipeline or progression ladder is not well defined.
We identified important responsibilities that a Quality professional should be accountable for, and when asked what our panel felt hindered growth within an organisation; title inflation, talent competition, remuneration and retention were all key issues.
Some of the key highlights include:
A quality mindset is essential
There is a disconnect between higher education and real-world quality
Experience-based learning models to inspire the next generation of quality talent
When transitioning into leadership positions you must get comfortable with moving laterally
When considering a small company, it is really important to expand your network
Title inflation is an industry-wide topic
One of the most impactful ways to accelerate diversity is to have representation
