Description:

When women are included in board positions, organizations gain more productivity, more profitability, and more employee commitment and retention. Women leadership is critical to a company’s success. And yet, only 21% of board members for Fortune 500 healthcare companies are women, while women make up half the workforce of these companies.

3.8 aims to bridge this gap by placing established female healthcare executives on the boards of MATTER member companies. The initiative also aims to bring awareness and explore solutions to the challenges women face when seeking leadership positions.
