Project Diversity

Welcome to Our D&I Vision

After hearing countless stories of women, less-abled, LGBTQ and ethnic minority staff feeling excluded from entry, progression and leadership within Medtech, we decided to create a platform to champion those voices.

We believe in a universal system that allows healthcare professionals across the globe to progress fully in their careers unhindered by discrimination and reach their potential through providing opportunities, strengthening the pipeline between hospital and industry and instigating change.

Seeing that companies were working individually towards this goal, we decided to create a collaborative space for companies to work together to build this system, ‘Together Through Difference’.

We know that market relevance, creativity and diversity are crucial to foster continual growth, stand out and thrive amidst the oncoming global economic recession.
Now more than ever, we are promoting a forum in which the medical device community can come together to support and uplift each other at all levels of business.
We fight to change lives everyday, but not every voice who can make a difference is currently nurtured or heard.

Data Proves the Urgency of D&I Work

We analysed large data-sets and conducted polls to support your move towards increased diversity in Medtech.
Here's what we found:

Catalyst found that getting diversity 'right' exponentially impacts business outcomes leading to:
  • 49% increase in team-problem solving
  • 35% more work engagement
  • 20% higher retention
  • 18% higher innovation
According to Harvard Business Review, companies with “two-dimensional” diversity are:
  • 45% more likely to report that they had captured a larger portion of the market
  • 70% more likely to have entered into a new market in the past year

Highly diverse teams are 13 times more likely to have high engagement. Working collaboratively in diverse teams from different backgrounds and companies can stimulate groups members and activate their cognitive functions in ways that are impossible otherwise. (Roundpegg 2014)
  • 50% of respondents polled in the healthcare industry felt that their voices were rarely or never heard
  • 21% of respondents thought that their company could be doing significantly more to address diversity
  • 78% of which said they would love to see more interactive approaches to diversity
