Chicks in Charge: Making Healthtech Meaningful

Monday, March 14

JW Marriott
Room 203-204
110 E 2nd St

Traits like collaboration and empathy -- traditionally labeled ‘female’ -- are widely hailed as the most valuable skills in design-driven organizations; are we at the tipping point for Girl Power for healthtech? As the primary purchasers, women increasingly demand healthcare products that feel more like Nordstrom and Amazon, where consumers realize high quality and lower cost in a personalized, respectful way. Can the female ethos, values, and leadership drive a revolution where healthtech feels more relevant, useful, even sexy – and has greater impact? The panel will discuss the realities challenges & opportunities for making healthtech offering more meaningful and commercially viable.
