The founding sponsor of the Boardroom Ready program since its inception, LifeSci Advisors is continuing its support of the Boardroom Ready program in its second year.

We are proud to be a sponsor of both Women In Bio and the Boardroom Ready program for the second year in a row, furthering the goal of helping place more women on corporate boards,” said Michael Rice, President and Co-Founder, LifeSci Advisors. “Gender diversity at the board level continues to be a major focus of LifeSci Advisors’ diversity initiatives, and the Boardroom Ready program is synergistic with our efforts.”

“LifeSci Advisors has been a great partner in our work and we appreciate their ongoing support of WIB and of the Boardroom Ready program,” said Dawn Hocevar, National President, Women In Bio. “The more partners we have in this important endeavor, the more impactful we can be collectively to advance gender diversity in the life sciences field.”

About Boardroom Ready

The Boardroom Ready certification program prepares women for board service by providing them with a full understanding of the duties, responsibilities and commitments of serving on both public and private boards. WIB will host its second annual program again at George Washington University this fall. The curriculum includes financial literacy and strategy, corporate governance, investor relations, and risk management. Throughout the program and following completion, LifeSci Advisors, WIB and other sponsors work to facilitate matching program graduates with companies seeking new board members. Among the 20 graduates from the inaugural October 2016 class, six have already been placed on boards.
