Study Probes Sex Discrimination in Pharmaceutical Industry

The Healthcare Businesswomen's Association (HBA) has conducted research on the obstacles women face while trying to advance their careers within the pharmaceutical industry. Researchers found that men and women have very different perspectives on whether or not women face sex discrimination.

According to a press release issued by the organization, HBA's P.O.W.E.R. study was designed to identify "structural and attitudinal forces" that foster or inhibit women's advancement in the pharmaceutical industry and to pass on the knowledge and experiences gained by women who have succeeded in reaching the industry's top ranks.

HBA's study, entitled "Perspectives on Workplace Environment Realities" (P.O.W.E.R.) will be presented to media at a June 3 press briefing in Newark, NJ. Teleconferencing will be offered to those journalists who are unable to attend but would like to participate off-site.
