Perception vs. Reality: The 4 Disconnects Preventing Gender Equality in Life Sciences

Earlier this month, we celebrated International Women's Day honoring the growing number of business leaders and Life Sciences companies that are making equality a top priority.

However, we also recognized that much more work needs to be done to achieve gender parity, particularly when it comes to pinpointing the obstacles that stand in our way.

The latest data from a survey by Ernst & Young, reveals major disconnects in what men and women believe are preventing women from progressing into executive roles. In our Feature Article "Perception vs. Reality: The 4 Disconnects Preventing Gender Equality in Life Sciences" we discuss these disconnects and provide practical steps to accelerate narrowing the gender gap within your company.

As part of our commitment to helping women advance into executive leadership positions, we are actively preparing to launch several exciting new programs, starting with our San Francisco HR Leader event on April 20th: Creating a Workplace Where Women Thrive by acclaimed executive coach and author, Will Marre. Please let us know if you are leading Human Resources in San Francisco and interested to attend this event – we have limited seats left.

Our team's dedication to helping women, business leaders and companies benefit from greater gender equality is one of the reasons we are honored to announce Toft Group has recently been named a Top 50 Search Firm in Healthcare and Life Sciences! We believe the more men and women are empowered without limitation, the more we will accelerate the Life Sciences community as a whole.
