Presented by

MSD, GSK, X-Chem, F. Hoffmann-La Roche, HBA

About this talk

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on how we all think and act. Our working environments may look very different now to the way they did pre-pandemic, and not all the changes have been negative. More flexible work schedules and an acceptance of new ways of thinking have allowed the diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) space to take a big step forward. But this is not the full story; some employees feel more isolated and excluded now than ever before. In this panel debate, speakers will offer an introduction to DE&I in the workplace pre-and post-pandemic, plus a close look at the challenges, opportunities and limitations COVID-19 has created. Talking points: • What does ‘diversity’ mean to you and what does/should DE&I look like in the pharma industry? • How has COVID-19 changed the way we approach DE&I in the workplace? • Are we doing better in certain sectors of the industry than others? • Has hybrid working helped or hindered a diverse working environment? Is it less inclusive? • What is the benefit to the industry if DE&I is delivered successfully? How has COVID-19 furthered this goal? • How can we inspire the next generation? How can we encourage them into the pharma industry and ultimately push for leadership roles? Speakers: Andrés López Castaño, Vaccine Therapeutic Area Lead, Global LGBTQI+ ERG Lead, MSD Switzerland Tricia Lucas-Clarke, Early Talent Recruitment Inclusion and Diversity Manager, GSK Noor Shaker, Senior Vice President and General Manager, X-Chem Sandra Van de Cauter, Innovation Enabling Partner and Diversity and Inclusion Lead, F. Hoffmann-La Roche MODERATOR: Marsha N. Ganthier, President, HBA Paris Chapter
