Change-Makers 2 - Clinical Trial Diversity: Concepts and Consequences (16 Sep 2020)
The development of new medicines is a lengthy and complex process that has the potential to improve the lives of people across generations, genders, races, and ethnicities.

We have witnessed organizations and communities around the world come together to rapidly respond to COVID-19.

Change-Makers 4 - How Young Professional Groups Are Changing the Future of Work (16 Oct 2020)
As new generations enter the workforce, companies are faced with learning how to best attract, engage, and retain this new pool of talented employees. However, there is a crucial step missing from the traditional paradigm: leveraging them.

Hear about the organizational changes and initiatives brought to the table by young professionals that are meeting high level business objectives and changing the way we work.
