Pioneering female surgeons, orthopedic industry professionals, their partners and allies, supported by evolving technologies, are leading the way to a more inclusive future.

In this episode of the Mindful Leadership podcast, we dive into a mega dose of inspiration with Amy Turk , Director of Strategy and Innovation, Global Growth Hip Marketing at DePuy Synthes in Johnson and Johnson), a woman on a mission to improve patient outcomes by championing inclusivity in orthopedics and busting many many biases and stereotypes, along the way.
