We’ve started a series of meet-ups at industry events, #HersMeetUp, to build connections and advocate women in the healthcare industry. These are not just networking events, but an opportunity for women to come together and find support and mentorship. These meet-ups are a forum to pose tough career questions, share challenges and seek advice and perspective from women of all levels. We are creating connections and building a community to stand together, stronger
At Edifecs, we focus on innovation. We understand that diversity fosters creativity. We value differing perspectives as they broaden our toolset of innovation. Further, it’s been documented that companies with women in the c-suite significantly out-perform male-only companies. Researches have tied revenue gains to an increased amount of female employees. Another study indicates that companies with female leaders and board-members have fewer scandals related to governance such as bribery, corruption fraud and shareholder feuds.*
We have a team dedicated to understanding how to make Edifecs a destination for female talent. Further, we are incentivizing employees and attending women in IT events to ensure we are connecting with and attracting the best female talent available.
We don’t just support women in healthcare, we support women’s health. Through these programs, we have run campaigns to raise money for BrightPink.org. Bright Pink is a national non-profit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.
