Celebrating International Women's Day!!

07 March 2018 | Features

International Women's Day is more than a day to celebrate the achievements of successful women. It's a day to recognise that the contributions of women from all walks of life, whether they be home makers or politicians, are crucial as we strive for gender parity.

Women have been struggling to prove their prowess in every field and obtaining equal rights. The pharmaceutical and healthcare industry across the globe has long been dominated by men, a trait that is prevalent in other industries worldwide.

In a similar vein, a big change is now also sweeping across the immensely technical and challenging business landscape of the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry across the globe. In the last few decades, laboratory and pharma business world has seen significant positive
changes. Today, the industry is witnessing fantastic female leaders emerging at the top, who not only hold positions of power within some of the biggest pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, but are also coming up with innovative game-changing ideas and services. Their business acumen apart, these women add tremendous value in shaping their organisations.
This increase is not, for the most part, due to any generic positive discrimination created by pharma companies, but a rapidly growing recognition of the talent and outstanding contribution women bring and will continue to bring in the future.
