In conjunction with BioPharmaChem Skillnet, CareerVision & Dr. Margaret Kennedy of Kennedy Insights, we developed a unique program (WiLD – Women in Leadership Development) aimed at uncovering and dismantling obstacles to greater female participation at a leadership level in this industry/STEM sector.
This 6 month programme is immersive and uniquely tailored to each cohort of female participants. It is informed by DEI research, by the voice of the female participants and by insights gleaned through years of working with women from all backgrounds.
A pilot programme was delivered in 2022 to women within a BioPharma organisation and the benefits were striking with 75% of participants making upward career moves, 100% stating an increased confidence in leadership potential and a programme Net Promoter Score of 92%.
A further 5 programmes are currently underway – the outputs and research data from which will be available this summer. This will provide the industry with some rich insights into how to better enable leadership participation by their talented females.
