Like the song by James Brown says “It’s a mans world…” and with 132 years still to go to reach gender parity and 151 to achieve workplace equality1, it is important to celebrate and uplift all of the incredible women around the globe.
International Women’s Day is a day to celebrate the progress that women have made, while also continuing to fight for equity and continued progress and change toward a world in which everyone can reach an equal outcome regardless of gender.
More women have moved into leadership positions over the last decade but there are still vast barriers for working women, particularly in leadership positions. This international Women’s Day we spoke with three of the women on MRNs leadership team about their journey in the life science space, how they reached their positions and what advice they have for women everywhere:
Adrienne Bryce – Vice President Portfolio Delivery
Caroline Potts – Vice President Visit Delivery
Shelley Fraser – Chief Financial Officer
There are so many different paths to get to where you want and not everyone’s journey will be the same, but with hard work, dedication and the support of family, friends, employers, and government bodies Women will reach equity long before the 151 years!
Happy International Women’s Day!
