HBA recognizes the urgency of addressing systemic bias & renewing our commitment to inclusivity & diversity in all forms, whether gender, racial, generational or sexual orientation. Now more than ever, we want to amplify our voices. We believe that powerful things can come from the sharing of diverse perspectives & engaged listening.

With this in mind, we have organized a virtual forum with HBA & other healthcare & life science leaders in order to spark dialogue, learn about developing strategies, & leverage learnings on our collective journey to address the enormous challenges and opportunities before us.
