2018: Pfizer, Insigniam, and KPMG

Pfizer, Insigniam and KPMG Initiatives to Advance Gender Parity Earn ACE Award Recognition

The HBA recognized Pfizer, Insigniam and KPMG International with its 2018 ACE Awards for exemplary workplace initiatives that are helping to advance women and drive gender parity in the business of healthcare. 

“Given that women comprise 85 percent of all customer healthcare decisions, organizations like Pfizer, Insigniam and KPMG have demonstrated how to effectively leverage their internal initiatives to advance gender parity and just as importantly to deliver strategic business insight,” said Laurie Cooke, president and CEO, HBA. “We’re proud to spotlight these successful programs that offer best practices and practical examples for other organizations to replicate.”

HBA’s ACE (Advancement. Commitment. Engagement.) awards recognize companies committed to ensuring that gender diversity and leadership opportunities for women are part of their organizational DNA. ACE award recipients are selected by an independent review panel of healthcare industry leaders for their excellence in corporate internal women’s leadership initiatives. Award criteria includes measurable results, business performance, stewardship, execution and sustainability.

This year, Pfizer was recognized for demonstrating an extraordinary drive to unlock the full potential of their female talent pool with a portfolio of game-changing programs offered through their internal global women’s network.
