Diversity & Inclusion in Health and Life Sciences: Where are we today?

Research supporting the business case for diversity in the workplace continues to grow. Yet, it is widely accepted that diversity is lacking in the health and life science sectors. Indeed, recent studies highlight that the gender gap in boardrooms and C-suites is among the highest in the health and life sciences as compared to other industries. Join our panel of executive women to explore why these gaps exist and what we and our organizations can do to make a change.

Women in Bio (WIB) Chicago is hosting A Discussion of the Legal, Regulatory, and Business Concerns for Biosimilars in 2018. Last year was a big one in the world of biosimilars: from doubling the number of approved biosimilar products to obtaining clarity on the legal landscape. Our distinguished panel will discuss the myriad legal, regulatory, scientific, pricing, and access issues that biosimilar applicants will be facing this year–issues which will determine whether the public will see another banner year for the availability of life- and cost-saving drug therapies. The panel will include Rekha Hanu, Executive Director, Chief IP Counsel, Akorn Pharmaceuticals and Chistine Simmon, Senior Vice President, Policy & Strategic Alliances, Association for Medicines.
