A career is a winding road, and leadership consultant Lynn LaPierre’s is no exception. She started off studying neuropsychology then law. While poring over brain scans or legal documents, however, she missed the connection with people. She’s been on the talent side ever since, specifically in life sciences.

Coinciding with the reveal of MM&M’s Best Places to Work winners, LaPierre joins MM&M executive editor Marc Iskowitz to discuss how the route to the top has changed in biopharma, why pharma is shedding jobs now and where the hot jobs will be going forward. She also weighs in on salary inequality and ways recruiters are addressing diversity & inclusion in the workplace.
