Celebration of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion:  An Award Presentation

SURVEY RESULTS

In March, Informa Connect Life Sciences conducted one of the biggest studies of its kind, asking life sciences professionals around the world how diverse and inclusive you feel your industry truly is. With 483 respondents across the spectrum of organization types, job roles and seniority – over one third of whom identify as a minority in the workplace – the results are chastening and overwhelmingly point towards a lack of representation. From this starting point, many organizations are now taking steps to improve diversity throughout their ranks.

Change Starts With Me


Some people feel they can't make a difference

Some people feel they can't affect change

Some people don't want to speak up

But silence and inaction are forms of complicity
