MedTech Color is a 501(c)(3) organization aiming to advance the representation of persons of color in the medical device industry. We are a destination and resource for professional development, thought leadership, and strategies to increase the number of underrepresented executives who enter, stay, and contribute to the industry.
In the fall of 2017, fifteen African American leaders from the medical device industry met over dinner in San Jose, California. They had explored three topics of interest to drive greater diversity in medtech.
First, they shared their stories of navigating the complexities of the industry as an ethnic minority.
Second, they explored what might be done to support and empower diverse patients and leaders in medtech.
Third, the group, made up of venture capitalists, large company executives, early-stage company CEOs, and top-tier service providers, mapped out a strategic plan for an organization that became MedTech Color.
Diversifying the medical device industry requires engaged and thoughtful leaders. We’re grateful to have some of the most innovative and committed leaders guiding our organization.
