Recap #5 'Women in Life Sciences: How do we Close the Gender Gap in Leadership?'

Yesterday, we at BioTalent welcomed our community to join in on our webinar ‘Women in Life Sciences: How do we Close the Gender Gap in Leadership?

where Christina Smith, Head of Data Science Search here at BioTalent, led a conversation about the inequality still experienced in the industry. We also discussed if there is any evidence that we will see more women in leadership in the future, and what we can do to encourage women to pursue a career in leadership roles. The panel consisted of 4 industry-leading experts who shared their expertise and thoughts on the matter. The panel included Eliza DornbushShardi Nahavandi Lorena Pantano, and Joseph Lehár


The webinar also included the following key topics: 

  • Leadership 
  • How we can encourage women to pursue leadership roles 
  • The importance of having a ‘growth mindset’ 
  • Speaking up and questioning management and people around you
  • Networking 
  • Finding a mentor
  • Collaboration and how this previously has been a hinder for success, but now is a key ingredient
