Have you ever had a chance encounter that changed the course of your life? That’s what happened to Danielle Mitchell, CEO of Black Women in Clinical Research. She discovered clinical research as a career path during a conversation at a pool party. After landing a clinical research coordinator role, she noticed the stark lack of diversity among staff. Since then, Danielle has been on a mission to educate and empower Black women to succeed in the industry.
“A lot of times when I talk to my members, they will say that they stumbled upon clinical research and that's not the way it should be. We should be telling college students, telling everyone about clinical research as much as possible.”
