MedExecWomen Empowers Women in Leadership Roles in the Medical Device Diagnostics and Digital Health Industries

MedExecWomen, an organization dedicated to empowering women in leadership roles in the medical device, diagnostics, drug delivery, and digital healthcare industries, hosted the second annual MedExecWomen conference on October 26, 2021, in Boston, MA.

The event brought together executives and thought leaders from Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, Medtronic, GE Healthcare, 3M Health Information Systems, Mass General Brigham, New England Baptist, United Health Group, Tufts Medical, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Topics discussed during the agenda covered medical innovation strategies in a post-COVID world.

Helen Routh, Board President of MedExecWomen said “Innovation in healthcare, particularly post COVID, requires us to work across industry sectors, alongside clinicians and payers. MedExecWomen does just this – sharing learnings and building networks with peers that will drive further improvements in outcomes.”

“We founded MedExecWomen to be a forum for senior leaders to network – to learn and engage with peers in the medtech world. We were so pleased to be back together after 18 months, and we look forward to our next opportunity to gather in spring/early summer of 2022,” said Laurie Halloran of Halloran Consulting Group.

Maria Shepherd of Medi-Vantage said, “We had an amazing turnout with over one hundred women attending the MedExecWomen meeting. Our speakers were leading physicians and experts from the medical device industry.”

MedExecWomen supports female executives by creating venues to network, refine leadership skills, and develop relevant expertise. The organization strives to:

  • Increase the value brought to healthcare by female executives
  • Strengthen future gender diversity through a connected, effective, and visible female leadership pool
  • Support female executives as they navigate ambiguity and complexity to lead in rapidly changing markets

MedExecWomen’s third annual conference will be held June 14, 2022, in Boston, MA.
