Another white male CEO at MassBio? The group has some explaining to do

Article here. Excerpt:

'The Massachusetts Biotechnology Council has some explaining to do.

Under previous president and chief executive Bob Coughlin, the powerful trade group got out front on the need for more women and people of color in the life sciences industry. MassBio commissioned a landmark study on gender diversity, hired its first diversity and inclusion director, and led a boycott of that scourge known as the “manel,” aka the all-male panel.

But when it came time to pick its next CEO, MassBio’s board conducted a nationwide search that seems destined to end with hiring yet another white guy from the Legislature.

So much for progress.'
