Our mission to be Female Forward, together
At Myovant, we believe a transformative effort is needed to make significant progress for women. Women account for 50% of the U.S. population, are the primary consumers of healthcare, and make the majority of healthcare decisions for their families. And yet, these same women are sidelined by common debilitating diseases, often silently suffering.
A key part of this effort is enabling women to speak openly about their experiences, free of shame and taboo, so that no one has to suffer in silence. That’s why we are partnering across sectors to elevate the conversation around women’s health and bring much-needed attention to conditions such as uterine fibroids and endometriosis because when she moves forward, we all move forward.
A conversation with leaders in women's health
In October 2018, at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Scientific Congress, Myovant launched Female Forward: A Conversation with Leaders in Women’s Health. This program brings together cross-sector leaders to discuss and advance an ambitious advocacy vision.
Our initial event included Kathleen Sebelius, former Secretary of Health and Human Services, Jessica Opoku-Anane, MD, Director of the UCSF Center for Endometriosis, David Keefe, MD, Chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU, and Nadya Okamoto, Founder and Executive Director of PERIOD. Inc., for an evening of honest and inspiring conversation.
In The Community
In addition to developing potential new treatments, our employees are passionate about making a positive difference in our surrounding community. Through volunteering opportunities, donation drives, and educational initiatives, our employees go above and beyond to embody our core values.
This is just the start. We know that transforming the landscape of women’s health and prostate cancer will require creative and sustained collaboration. We are dedicated to building a movement of leaders who share our vision for a brighter and healthier future for women and men. Through cross-sector partnerships, we are turning our words into action. We strive to empower people, through purpose-driven science and transformative advocacy.
Leading By Example
Our partnerships start with a shared commitment to empower women and men through education and research. We are always looking for passionate people and organizations who want to join us in changing the landscape of women’s health and prostate cancer.
The problems we choose to focus on are challenging and extensive. But our vision for change and our commitment to our mission is just as formidable.
What motivates us at Myovant? The opportunity to innovate and advocate for millions of patients. At the intersection of business and advocacy, we strive to make a positive difference for patients each and every day.
