Reimagining Healthcare: Through a Gender Lens

The survival, let alone the prosperity, of healthcare companies today depends not only on adopting a patient-centered model, but understanding-- and meeting-- the needs of its most important customer segment: Women. In Reimagining Healthcare: Through a Gender Lens, author Carolyn Buck Luce draws on Center for Talent Innovation data, focus groups and interviews with industry leaders to provide industry leader guidelines on how to get “gender-smart”: to understand women as not merely consumers but also decision-makers; as not merely caregivers but also employees with valuable insights to share.

The Power of the Purse: Engaging Women Decision Makers for Healthy Outcomes

The report explores the decision-making priorities of female health consumers in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Japan, and Brazil and the industry challenges and solutions to building trust with this market segment. The majority of healthcare decisions are made by women yet they are not confident in the health decisions they make. The lack of confidence is due to shortage of time, knowledge and trust in the industry, resulting in poor health outcomes for themselves and others. The report finds that to engage female consumers, healthcare companies must first understand their unique definition of health and the behaviors that drive trust and satisfaction among female patients and consumers.

Off-Ramps and On-Ramps Japan: Keeping Talented Women on the Road to Success

In 2005, our groundbreaking study “Off-Ramps and On-Ramps: Keeping Talented Women on the Road to Success,” found that 37% of highly-qualified women in the U.S. take an off-ramp—voluntarily quitting their jobs for a period of time. To explore the global dimension of off-ramps and on-ramps, we conducted a “deep dive” into the Japan context. How many professional Japanese women leave their careers, and for how long? What are the main reasons for off-ramping? Are women “pulled” by their family responsibilities or “pushed” by male-dominated workplace cultures? In this report we investigate the challenges and opportunities faced by Japanese women, delve into the forces that impede women’s career progress, and lay out what can be done to help this highly qualified but under-leveraged talent pool thrive in a nation that faces severe skill shortages going forward.
