Gender Imbalance a Hot Topic in Biotech Recruitment


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/23/2021 -- The gender imbalance in biotech recruitment is a topic that is often hotly debated. While women tend to make 80% of all healthcare buying decisions and make up 65% of the healthcare workforce nationwide in the USA, very few women hold positions of power in biotech and healthcare companies. One report found that women hold just 13% of CEO roles in this industry and only 25 - 30% of C-suite roles. What's becoming clear is that where biotech recruitment isn't prioritizing bringing more women into these positions over the next decade, those companies that aren't investing in this will start falling behind those that are. This isn't just an issue of gender equality but business performance too - more diverse boards lead to better results. A report by S&P Global Market Intelligence found that firms with female CFOs are more profitable and those with female CFOs and CEOs have better performing stock prices. This is a significant issue in biotech and one that the right recruitment can help to correct.
