About the Event

Including presentation from Sue MacLeman, CEO and Managing Director of MTPConnect.

The pharmaceutical and medical solutions sector is a knowledge-based, rapidly changing, technology-intensive industry that is uniquely placed to develop and commercialise the outcomes of Australia’s long term investment in medical research. Despite the fact that women make up to 80 percent of healthcare decisions for their families, generally use more healthcare and medicine than men and more caregivers are women, women make up a very small proportion of top level executives in a majority of pharma and medical solution provider organisations. Given the consumer profile of the market, it is in the best commercial interests of organisations to aim for greater gender balance in terms of senior level decision making through developing a more diverse leadership team.

The Women in Pharma and Medical Leadership Summit brings together some of the country’s finest front-runners in the sector to share valuable expertise gained over significant careers. The event will give delegates the opportunity to hear from leaders and experts, to discuss the issues that face them in the unique context of their sector and develop plans and goals for the future. The event is designed to give delegates the inspiration, tools and skills they need to effectively lead in a dynamic and constantly changing environment. It will highlight how leaders in this environment can successfully achieve both their professional and personal aspirations.
