Why are we still talking about this?
In our 2017 survey of over 300 women in healthcare, nearly half think it will take 25+ years to achieve gender parity in the workplace. Despite being critical healthcare stakeholders, no woman serves as CEO of a Fortune 500 healthcare company and 61% of VC firms investing in digital health have zero women partners. But there is one area seeing tremendous improvement over the last few years: 24% of CEOs of digital health startups founded in 2016 were women, an enormous increase over previous years.
In our latest report, we aim to contribute to meaningful and actionable dialogue around gender parity, with the hopes of providing a foundation for our industry to turn this dialogue into action. We thank you for continuing the discussion—and invite you to share how you have witnessed gender parity improvements in action at the end of the report.
