In 2023, Medical Design & Outsourcing reported just 23.1% of medtech industry CEOs were women, up from 21.8% in 2022. While the percentage of women in C-suite roles in the medtech industry continues to inch its way up, the industry still has a long way to go in promoting women's leadership.

This is one of many reasons why it is vital for women-owned businesses - especially in all aspects of healthcare - to seek the available certifications and promote talented, intelligent, hard-working women within their organizations. 

I practice what I preach and am proud to announce that Rpharmy has recently received certification in the Texas Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Program. The HUB Program is a state initiative designed to promote opportunities for businesses owned by minorities and women in the area of state procurement and contracting. It provides various opportunities for women-owned businesses to garner the attention of state agencies and consideration for upcoming contracts. 

The Statewide HUB program also sponsors and coordinates events across Texas to provide educational and networking opportunities with state agencies, universities, local governments, and other entities such as business development centers or trade organizations.

Though I may hold the title of owner and CEO of Rpharmy, our success is due in large part to the women on our team now and those who have helped us achieve our current success over the years. Our COO, also known as my husband John, and the other men on the Rpharmy team are supportive of my leadership and the contributions of the women in our organization. 

I share this Texas HUB program achievement with my entire team and thank them for their support and encouragement over the years. As a woman business owner, I pledge to continue to amplify the value women leaders bring to the healthcare sector.
