Steinberg Diagnostic is proud to employ a diverse group of powerful women throughout our organization. In honor of International Women's Day we brought together our female doctors, executives, directors and chief technologist to talk about what it means to be a woman in business, who they look up to and more. Join the conversation and get to know these incredible women.
We spoke with the women leaders at SDMI and reminded them that 75% of management is female, see their reactions and hear what it means to them to work for an organization that is 100% local and 100% behind their women.
