A regulatory consultant in the food and supplement industries must be confident and knowledgeable to navigate the murky waters of laws that are often not black and white. When a woman takes this role, she is acting outside of gender norms in a field dominated by men. In this Healthy Insider podcast, Rena Cohen-First, director of sales, Western Region, The Wright Group, talks with Denise Webster, regulatory consultant, Food Brand Protection, about her career as a Gen X female leader. Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, INSIDER, shares a bit of the Millennial perspective.
- The type of personality it takes to be a regulatory consultant in the food and supplement industries, and Webster’s successful career path;
- The perks and flexibility a company can provide to attract female leaders;
- Where the next generation of women in the health and nutrition industry can find mentors and solidarity.
