One common theme runs through Binish Khan’s 14-year career — her focus on improving healthcare through innovative technology solutions. While creative and technology teams have tended to work separately, she has looked for opportunities for cross-functional teams to collaboratively solve challenges.

Central to Khan’s leadership has been approaching the user experience with an empathetic lens. Among her significant achievements was creating a sustainable, engaging experience to design and develop sites for accessibility — especially important for clients with rare disease populations.

In 2021, she co-led her team at Avalere Health’s legacy agency Closerlook to ensure that websites comply with the American Disabilities Act and other accessibility guidelines. She drove the collaborative effort to build an accessible solution without compromising client objectives.

Khan is also the mother of two young children. During the COVID-19 pandemic she helped employees transition to remote work while personally learning how to navigate motherhood without childcare.
