Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Early-Stage Life Science Companies

September 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

johnson innovation - Banff Venture Forum


As an early-stage entrepreneur, you want to attract the most exceptional talent who will help your company grow. Developing and implementing an effective DEI strategy can be essential to your efforts to secure the very best people to help maintain your competitive advantage.

In this webinar, we will speak with fellow life science leaders and industry experts who will share their insights and best practices, and outline strategies that early-stage companies can deploy to ensure equal opportunity for all employees and prospects.

The webinar will drill down on several important and related issues, including:

  • Moving beyond diversity
  • Creating sustainable practices to retain your diverse talent
  • Identifying and overcoming the stigmas and biases that hinder equity in the workplace
  • Understanding the distinction between equality and equity

This will be an interactive and open discussion, allowing you the opportunity to offer up your impressions and questions with the objective of gaining a more clear and nuanced understanding of equity in the workplace, and how it fits into your DEI framework.
