Commitment to Diversity

Biogen & Women in Bio

Aiming to boost female board representation BIOGEN launched an internal program in 2015 to prepare women for corporate governance. Last year, WOMEN IN BIO took the reins of what is now called Boardroom Ready and expanded the program industry-wide. Nine of the 13 women in the 2015 class, and four from the 2016 class, have been placed on corporate boards.
