ED&I in Precision Medicine

Advancing the Ever-Evolving ED&I Movement Within the Precision Medicine Community to Foster Collaboration, Advocate Membership & Accelerate Innovation to Meaningfully Embed Inclusion Within Personalized Healthcare

This Event Ran Monday, 27 September
8.30am - 12.30pm EDT | 5.30am – 9.30am PDT

4 years on from when the #MeToo movement got reignited, a year on from when the world united behind the BLM movement, and in a year still reeling from the effects of COVID19, how do we continue to shine a light on the crucial and ever-evolving ED&I conversations?

For the third consecutive year, the Equity, Diversity & Inclusion in Precision Medicine workshop brought together 450+ global precision medicine decision makers to continue the movement and drive forward our community’s commitment to ED&I within our teams, functions and wider businesses.

With 30+ precision medicine leaders joining the 2021 expert speaker faculty, this event sharpened leadership skills and showcased the tools to create inclusive and empowering working environments within your organizations. Industry leaders gathered to advance the ever-evolving ED&I movement within the precision medicine community to foster collaboration, advocate membership and accelerate innovation to meaningfully embed inclusion within personalized healthcare.
