This week’s episode of “WisBusiness: The Podcast” features a chat with Lisa Johnson, CEO of BioForward Wisconsin.
This Madison-based nonprofit supports the state’s biohealth industry, putting on events and providing relevant services and resources. It represents over 200 Wisconsin companies in fields like medical devices, diagnostics and digital health, as well as research institutions and others involved in the industry.
She discusses an initiative called “Women in Biohealth,” which began in 2017 and helps provide opportunities for professional development.
“It’s really a support network,” she said. “A safe environment, to really uplift women and give them the tools they need to advance in companies.”
