Head, Diversity Strategy
As the Head of Diversity Strategy at Bristol Myers Squibb, Lorena has been leading the diversity in clinical trials efforts for the past two years, with the objective of recruiting a patient population that reflect both the demographics of the real world and represent the epidemiology of the disease being studied. Prior to working at BMS, she spent several years in the Latin America and Canada Region in Novartis, where she started her career in Pharma back in Mexico over 15 years ago. As a strong inclusion advocate, she leverages her experience, intersectionality and personal purpose, as well as the roles she holds at the WOCIP Board of Directors, the RedShoeMovement Ambassador Program and her hometown Diversity Committee to build an inclusive culture that values differences and serves ALL populations. Lorena was awarded the 2020 PEOPLE EN ESPANOL MAGAZINE Recognition: “Las 25 Mujeres mas Influyentes” celebrating women who have made a difference empowering others.
