JLABS x IGNITE: Girls Just Wanna Have Funds

Thursday, January 23, 2020 | JLABS x IGNITE: Girls Just Wanna Have Funds

Who run the healthcare world? Women make 80% of all buying decisions and make up over 70% of the healthcare workforce—yet in 2019 we still do not have an equal voice in the ranks of leadership.

The percent of women on Fortune 500 healthcare executive teams and boards has been nearly flat since 2015, hovering at 22%, and the percent of women CEOs of funded digital health startups stands at 10%. Why aren’t things moving fast enough?

Join JLABS and IGNITE for an evening of rotating round table discussions as we tackle these questions and start to forge a path forward for two of the most prohibitive factors at play: a lack of a robust network of female mentors and lack of investment dollars in female-led startups. Because Girls Just Wanna Have Funds!
