FierceMedicalDevices is putting together a list of the "Top 10 Women in Med Tech" for the very first time this year to honor top innovators, dealmakers and other standouts in the sector. And we have opened our online form for nominating women for this year's feature. Submit your nominations here.
We aren't alone in noticing the gender imbalance at the top in med tech. There's a nonprofit dedicated to highlighting women in leadership positions, MedtechWomen. They've held a conference for each of the last few years featuring some of the top women in med tech.
Some of the keynote speakers they've featured include Sue Siegel, CEO of General Electric's GE Ventures and healthymagination; Molly Coye, Chief Innovation Officer of the UCLA Health System; and Ginger Graham, the former group chairman for Guidant who sits on the boards of Genomic Health and Proteus Digital Health.
Our sister publication, FierceBiotech, conducts a similar call for the top women in biotech, which receives dozens of nominations annually. They've produced a "Top Women in Biotech" list for the last several years. Don't let med tech be outdone! Please help us find women of this caliber who are helping to define the regulatory, financing and commercialization landscape for the latest in med tech.
This is our inaugural list of top women in med tech. So please help us find the most influential women in the med tech industry today. Nominations are due by September 15. -- Stacy Lawrence (email | Twitter)
