Championing women forging innovation through technology

Today is International Women’s Day, and this year the theme is #BreakTheBias, creating a world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. One of the missions being championed is to celebrate digital advancement and champion the women forging innovation through technology, and this mission reflects what Arbutus Medical’s team also believes.

Arbutus Medical was founded by three engineers, one of them a woman. Two years ago, founder Elise Huisman shared her experiences of being a woman working in engineering and medical technology. Two years later, Arbutus Medical continues to champion women and diversity in technology.

Our engineering and marketing team includes talented women from diverse backgrounds representing a variety of generations, with experience in many countries as well as Canada. We believe that the diversity of our staff, including gender diversity, contributes to our company’s success and builds a culture that drives our mission to manufacture simple orthopedic power tools that reduce the cost of surgery and improve access for patients.

On International Women’s Day 2022, we celebrate the women on our team and acknowledge the men working alongside them that encourage and champion diversity in technology. Together we are all working to #BreakTheBias and forging innovation through technology.
