New Awards Recognise Women in Leadership in Biotech, Medtech and Healthcare Technology

Australian women do comparatively well in biotechnology, medtech and healthcare technology – with 11.1% of companies in the sector in the ASX 200 having female executive key management personnel and 11.9% in the ASX 500.

However, in recognition that these figures need to improve and to honor outstanding women in the sector, The BioMelbourne Network will, this Friday, announce its inaugural Women in Leadership Awards.

The winners of the two awards – the BioMelbourne Network 2015 Women in Leadership Award and the Emerging Women in Leadership Award - have been selected because of their leadership in their fields of expertise, the contributions to the industry, their roles as mentors, and to recognize those women who “take strategic risks, tenaciously pursue goals and have made outstanding contributions to innovation in the industry,” according to Dr Krystal Evans, CEO of BioMelbourne Network.
