The top read story in todays HealthEconomics.Com newsletter was an article by Forbes.Com guest commentator DeeDee Deman, CEO of Bench International executive recruiting agency, and was entitled For Women Execs in Pharma, The Glass Ceiling is Cement. There is not a single major pharma company that is headed by a female CEO in America or Europe. For our Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) community, women are well-represented among the ranks of researchers but few HEOR departments in pharma are headed by a female and even fewer large consulting companies have a female at the helm. Dr. Patti Peeples, President and Founder of HealthEconomics.Com, said, The issue of the cement ceiling for women is a pivotal issue for pharma and for the medical and healthcare profession as a whole. HealthEconomics.Com, as a major resource for news and information for the HEOR community, are directing efforts into tracking the trends of female executives in our health economics field, with the objective of shedding light on career paths and options for all individuals, regardless of gender.
