More about About The 3.8 Initiative at MATTER

When women are included in board positions, organizations gain more productivity, more profitability, and more employee commitment and retention. Women leadership is critical to a company’s success. And yet, only 21% of board members for Fortune 500 healthcare companies are women, while women make up half the workforce of these companies.

The 3.8 Initiative, named for International Women’s Day (March 8), seeks to increase diversity in the healthcare innovation community and explore solutions to the challenges women face when seeking leadership positions. In addition to board placement, board appointees and businesses will have access to educational workshops and networking events designed to ensure board readiness. The initiative also aims to bring awareness and explore solutions to the challenges women face when seeking leadership positions.

The 3.8 Program is the first of its kind board advisory program that provides eligible women with hands-on experience with MATTER startup companies to acquire board-ready skills and weigh in on company development and growth.
