Getting There: Strategies To Improve Gender Equality In Pharmaceuticals And Healthcare

There are efforts being put in to reducing gender disparities, which needs to be acknowledged although at the same time there needs to be an understanding that there remains a considerable way to go. As an example of the importance of seeking more equal gender relations at work, the United Nations has included gender equality as one of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The importance of putting in place measures to counter-act the effects of gender pay and opportunity discrimination are in terms of benefits to individual companies (not least the effect of gender bias can lead to mistakes in decision making that prove counter-productive to the organization) and for society overall.

With the number of initiatives have been in progress in recent years that are seeking to redress this imbalance, this paper presents measures being taken as well as considering some of the effects of gender imbalance within pharmaceuticals and healthcare.
