Ontario Bioscience Innovation Organization Supports Advancement of Women in the Business of Health Science With Six-Day Bootcamp

TORONTO , August 05 /Businesswire/ - As health science companies gear up for post-pandemic growth, the Ontario Bioscience Innovation Organization (OBIO) is working towards positioning women to meet the demand for top talent with its second six-day bootcamp, Women in the Business of Health Science. The training, conducted from August 23 –30, addresses the knowledge and skills required to secure business-oriented roles in the health science industry. The bootcamp, which covers topics such as marketing, sales, strategy, business development, project management and operations, is open to employed and unemployed women looking to enter or advance their careers in the health science industry who meet the eligibility criteria and submit their application on/before Friday, August 13. The program is free of charge for qualified participants.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the barriers women face across all industries and by April 2021, more than 16,000 women had dropped out of the labour force completely. To address some of the challenges encountered by women and to support their reentry into the workforce, the bootcamp provides participants with professional development mentorship in career advancement strategies or in job search preparation, such as resume and interview coaching.

“As Canada shifts into higher gear post-COVID-19, we want women to be prepared to meet and capitalize on the increased demand for talent,” said Gail Garland, President and CEO, OBIO. “We know that women benefit from the knowledge and skills acquired during our bootcamp because 75% of participants secured positions within three months of completion. OBIO is ideally positioned to help both women and health science companies grow during our post-pandemic recovery.”
