Not your parent’s white paper
Rock Reports combine aggregated data with expert anecdotes to tell a story, delivered in a
user-friendly format. In this report, we wanted to better understand the roles and experiences of
US women working in healthcare, and find areas for improvement. This report sources data
from public sources, healthcare companies and a survey distributed to women in the space.
Caveat: we are not professional white-paperistas, just curious advocates who like to share
knowledge and further discussion around important topics.

  • 13. We asked 100 women, What are the biggest barriers for your career advancement? ls ns p ts e 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% Family Obligations Ability to connect with senior leadership Self confidence Time constraints Education / Skills Source: Rock Health Survey of 100 women in healthcare, 2011
  • 15. Gender roles continue to exist in the workplace, making this progression harder than originally imagined. For example, I work in a company that fosters women to rise, with full support from upper management. However, the same upper management is male dominated, making it difficult to form a strong connection. I feel a little less confident than my male counterparts to take up leadership or presentation responsibilities within the workplace made to senior male leadership. My male coworkers are more likely to take credit for a job, whereas I tend to share credit with those that have helped me in the process of carrying out a task.
  • 16. It wasn't until I was working through the ranks of middle management that I saw how difficult it can be for woman to advance into senior leadership roles. I think it is a natural tendency to hire, promote, and mentor individuals who are most like you so by virtue of fewer women in senior leadership positions I think that dynamic contributes to a woman's ability to advance. “ ” KATIE VAHLECo-Founder & Patient Advocate of CoPatient
  • 17. LACK OF MENTORS & ROLE-MODELS
  • 18. DR. BRIDGET DUFFY Early in my career I served as Medical Director at one of the world’s largest medical device companies.  The company was hosting an annual CEO Summit, and when I walked into the large auditorium I was struck by the audience.   I turned to the CEO and whispered, “and you wonder what is wrong with healthcare today?!”  The room was filled with 300 white, middle aged men!  I couldn’t believe my eyes.  I thought, where are the women leading these organizations! “ ” CEO, ExperiaHealth
  • 19. I believe the lack of women executive leaders (in terms of numbers as compared to men) is due to not having enough role models and women not knowing what they can achieve in this space. “ ” IYA KHALILCo-Founder and Executive Vice President of GNS Healthcare
  • 20. 13% 22% 22% 43% No mentor Both male & female mentors Male mentor Female mentor Do you have a mentor? Source: Rock Health Survey of 100 women in healthcare, 2011 "Mentorship" is a bit of a loaded word. How about just building genuine relationships? That’s hard too given I don’t drink beer, which is all my coworkers do outside the office. Finding mentors that transcend our entrenched medical system is what I find most challenging. The few women leaders that I want to connect with seem too busy to build a relationship with a junior person like me.
  • 21. WORK / LIFE BALANCE
  • 22. Trying to fit a reproduction schedule within a growing career is always on my mind. My male peers (and partner) give this significantly less thought. Making room has forced me to reconsider my aspirations for academic leadership. And it’s also leading me to be more creative and look beyond academia into careers in business and public health that are dynamic, flexible and still interesting and engaging. DHARUSHANA MUTHULINGAMMedical Student at UCSF “ ”
  • 23. As women, the most valued qualities in our private lives have not caught up to our professional lives. What I am rewarded for professionally (drive, intensity, etc) can hurt me personally. Women have to have a very honed on/off switch. That is why we are redefining femininity. “ ” STEPH HABIFBehavior Designer/Strategist
  • 25. Data shows that women are at the center of healthcare decisions in the family unit and experience the full spectrum of healthcare delivery. As leaders in the healthcare system, women bring firsthand views as customers. They can then help define and improve on these experiences, making the healthcare system more user friendly, convenient, and efficient. As healthcare professionals, women bring empathy and increased communication skills. This is an industry where women can naturally lead. SUE SIEGELPartner at Mohr Davidow “ ”
  • 26. The healthtech startup that doesn't recognize that every household has what I call the "Family Chief Health & Wellness Officer" (aka "Mom" in many cases) is missing the boat. The reality is that the female head of household makes 80-90% of healthcare decisions. I've often joked that men make the purchase decisions for beer, batteries and tires with women making most of the rest of them. This is especially true in healthcare. DAVE CHASEFounder & CEO, Avado “ ”
  • 27. Engaging women in health provides great insight from life experience–into the mechanisms through which good health can be maintained, risk factors identified, and health conditions treated.  Women are all too often viewed as the target beneficiaries of specialized health programs– but not strategically engaged as the drivers of the solutions that will revolutionize the way that health services and products are designed and delivered.  PATTY MECHAELExecutive Director, mHealth Alliance “ ”
  • 28. It is called healthcare for a reason. Find and focus on what you authentically care about. Focus on the impact you want to make.  Plan for pushback. That makes it much easier to persist, to overcome the inevitable challenges, to seize the right opportunities, to spend the time necessary to become expert in a certain area, to rally not only your own but others’ resources, time, skill, and talent around your goals. DONNA CRYERChairman of the Board, American Liver Association / CEO, Cryer Health “ ”
  • 29. Showcase the women’s successes. Let our daughters see what women can achieve. Support reversals of traditional domestic roles. Encourage your workplace to offer paid parental leave for fathers, too. Serve as a mentor to other women. Build relationships with women at every level. Speak up. Offer to guest blog, speak at conferences, and make your voice heard. Attend events for women. [Like the Rock Health XX Day in April.] How can we reduce barriers and promote more female leaders?
  • 30. You are in charge of your career!  Invest the time to invest in yourself, take stock of where you are in your career progression on an ongoing basis. And don’t take yourself to seriously.  Laughter helps! - Sue Siegel   We need more women leading the charge in this field.  I have benefited greatly from fantastic mentors and encourage women to find cheerleaders and individuals who are doing the things that they would like to do to explore the possibilities. -Patty Mechael Find other women who “Think Big” and want to disrupt the status quo in healthcare.  Cold call someone you admire that has done something transformative in the industry and ask them to serve as a mentor. - Dr. Bridget Duffy Words of wisdom Healthcare companies need to take an active role in grooming women for executive positions for effective succession planning. Making these investments early on willpay off in the long run. - Rebecca Woodcock
  • 31. “Just don’t give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.” ELLA FITZGERALD
