BioBuzz Virtual Event – DE&I: More Than a Buzzword

February 16, 2022 @ 12:00 PM 1:30 PM

A global expansion of the biohealth industry, which saw even greater growth from the pandemic, combined with a skills shortage and rapidly changing technology landscape, has made ‘talent’ the most urgent of topics both in the boardroom and on the front line for hiring managers.  Diversity, Equity and Inclusion have finally become more critical elements in those conversations as companies, large and small, are starting to take more immediate actions to ensure their workforce demographics match our diverse population.

With this panel discussion, we will dive deeper into the topic with several leaders who are leading such efforts, and hear about their journeys to attract, train, and retain a diverse biohealth workforce. 

At this event you will learn specific examples of how companies are successfully;

  • Building a culture of inclusion and equal opportunity
  • Developing and implementing D&I recruiting practices that attract diverse candidates at all levels of the organization
  • Investing in training and development programs to develop diverse populations for their workforce
  • Developing their workforce to create a diverse executive team and board
  • Transforming their companies into learning organizations to keep diverse talent moving upwards within the organization
  • Diversifying the entrepreneurial ecosystem by increasing the number of startups and founders among underrepresented populations
  • And much more
