News and Press Releases

Life Sciences boards are recruiting more women, but lack of robust talent management slows progress towards greater diversity

London, 14 October 2014: RSA, the leading global Life Sciences Executive Search and Interim Management specialist, today announced that, according to new research, the number of women serving in non-executive roles on life sciences boards has jumped by 33% since 2012. However, although an increase from 12% to 16% in female board members in the past two years looks good, the rise is due to existing women board members taking on more roles within the board. As a result, the global executive search firm urges that more must be done to encourage chairs to recruit new and experienced female life sciences experts to their boards.
