Why Our Lives Depend Upon Women On Boards – Dr. Corinne Post, Lehigh University

“In a (brand new) study…focused on the medical products industry – which includes medical devices, pharmaceuticals and biologics – a group of researchers found that…firms with female directors announced (life-threatening) high-severity product recalls 28 days sooner.”  The Study’s Executive Summary, April 20, 2020

So, before you get that stent put in or new COVID-19 treatment or vaccine, find out how many women are on the board.  It could literally save your life, according to a new first-of-its-kind study by a group of researchers from four top universities,  which found that public medical products companies with more women on their boards recalled defective more often and much sooner that all-male or one-woman boards.

Listen to one of the study’s co-authors, Dr. Corinne Post of Lehigh University, in this important interview with host Joan Michelson.

You’ll hear:

I would recommend exploring ways to bring (your) knowledge to a new area, a new firm, a new venue, sort of bridging, (because)… that’s  always where there’s room for growth, and for learning and for impact…You could…contribute new knowledge and potential innovative outcomes.” Corinne Post
