Knowledge at the heart of leadership
Welcome to Liftstream - Life Sciences Executive Search and Leadership Advisory

What does it take to reach and succeed at the ‘C’ and Board level?

Liftstream has been collaborating with two organisations to put together a key leadership meeting on gender diversity in biotechnology. The event is based on our published research and we have worked with our network of executives to bring about an incredible panel of industry leaders.

Prioritizing Gender Equity:  What does it take to reach and succeed at the “C” and Board level?

A partnered event co-designed by Women in Bio (WIB) and growBOLD.

Date:   Thursday, June 11th, 2015
Time:   6:00 – 9:00 pm 
(appetizers and networking begin at 5:30pm)
Location:  Genentech, Building 31, South San Francisco

Liftstream’s recent study: Diversifying the Outlook – The X&Y of Biotechnology, showed that women and men working in life sciences are equally ambitious when it comes to gaining executive or board positions – and there are a large number of highly qualified and skilled women actively seeking leadership positions…

So why do over 50% of all biotech companies in the US have exclusively male boards?

And how can aspiring women be more effective at reaching and succeeding on Life Science Boards and Executive Teams?

Liftstream has collaborated with two organizations; Women in Bio and growBOLD to hold a leadership event to explore this topic through a facilitated panel discussion.  Results from Liftstream’s research will set the stage, and high-profile life science executives share their experience and lessons learned.


Heather Erickson, CEO, Life Sciences Foundation


Wende Hutton, General Partner, Canaan Partners

Mark Goldsmith, CEO, Revolution Medicines and Partner at Third Rock Ventures

Laura Shawver, CEO, Cleave Bioscience

  1. Hear the latest research on gender diversity at the Board and Executive level within the life sciences
