But as a top executive of a life science company, especially a publicly traded company, loud opinions can come with market backlash or alienated employees.
Hear from CEO’s who have taken a bold stand on issues they care about, and learn about the considerations that came along with those decisions. Is it possible to avoid alienating investors and employees? Is not speaking out an even bigger risk? Learn how to navigate this rocky path from the people who have done it, and the experts who advised them.
