WOMEN ENTERING LIFE SCIENCES, BUT FEW HOLD TOP-LEVEL POSITIONS

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, SEPT. 21, 2017.....Men and women enter the life sciences in roughly equal proportions, but a gender gap emerges at more senior career levels with women filling a significantly smaller share of top posts, according to a new report from the state's biotechnology trade group.

The report from the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council and the executive recruiting company Liftstream examines the state of gender diversity in the Massachusetts life sciences sector. It found that while men and women aspire to reach "C-suite" executive and board positions at the same rate, women hold 24 percent of C-suite posts and 14.4 percent of posts at the board level.

Abbie Celniker, who chairs MassBio's board of directors, said the vice president and senior vice president level is "sort of the key pivot point, whether it be in attrition or people sort of resigning themselves to not push to go further."
