Women in Health Economics and Outcomes Research
The ISPOR Women in Health Economics and Outcomes Research (HEOR) initiative is open to all ISPOR members who have an interest in the advancement of women in the field—both women and men. Much research has demonstrated that diversity is a business/performance issue not a women’s issue. This initiative seeks to foster diversity in HEOR—with the knowledge that diversity in the field will result in better research and better healthcare decisions.
...initiative's vision is to:
- Support the growth, development, and contribution of women in HEOR
- Serve as a catalyst for women’s leadership in the field
- Offer a platform for ISPOR women to collaborate, network, share, and mentor each other
Women in HEOR conducted and analyzed a survey of the ISPOR membership in November 2018. The results of that survey can be found here.
Look for upcoming Women in HEOR events to be posted soon for ISPOR 2022.
Now available on demand: join moderator Julia F. Slejko, PhD and panelists Jalpa A.

Mentorship provides advantages for professionals at any career stage. Panelists will examine issues such as: how to identify and gain career mentors, why mentorship does not have to take place in a formal mentoring program, the distinction between mentors and sponsors, and how mentoring benefits both the mentor and mentee.
