For the second year running Liftstream has been nominated as a finalist for the ‘Commitment to Diversity’ award. This year we have the pleasure of being nominated alongside our wonderful partner MassBio and their Chairwoman – Abbie Celniker. the nomination would seem to recognise the research and advocacy work that Liftstream and MassBio have been doing on the issue of gender diversity in the life sciences industry of Massachusetts.
In late 2017 we published the study ‘Opening the Path to a Diverse Future’, a 140-page report that publishes important findings that provide the life sciences industry with a better understanding as to why women are not fully represented at every level of the industry. This has been followed up with actions and advocacy which has received widespread attention.
We are of course proud and honoured to have been nominated. We hope this year we win!!
