MedComms companies are striving to build a truly diverse workforce, which should translate into real benefits for the business and also improve the well-being of individuals within the business. Importantly, it should also directly inform and improve the services we deliver, which, after all, are intended for very diverse audiences. In recent years, there has been a greater focus on gender, ethnicity and race, though other characteristics are sometimes forgotten about. Examples include visible (and invisible) disabilities, neurodiversity, gender identity and expression, caring responsibilities, and socio-economic circumstances.
In this webinar, we hear some personal stories and experiences that will encourage us all to think about how well we support each other in practice, and about how MedComms can offer career opportunities for all – free from prejudice and discrimination. Jayne Carey-George is Scientific Director at Sciterion and was born with severe-to-profound hearing loss. Hayley Hubberstey is the Director of Patient Engagement at COUCH Health. She has recently been diagnosed with ADHD, has experienced herself and cared for others with long term health conditions. Simon Stones is Medical Writer at Envision Pharma Group who has been a carer and has coped with psoriatic arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and a number of other conditions since childhood. All have successful careers in MedComms. What challenges have they faced along the way and what practical advice can they offer employers and employees? Please come to this webinar with questions, and help generate further discussion and action to make MedComms the equitable, diverse, and inclusive workplace it should be.
The webinar is free of charge and, all being well, a recording will be posted afterwards at NetworkPharma.tv.
Note we are allowing 60 minutes for the webinar and we always aim to finish promptly on time.
