Cindy Eckert Work in Progress with Sophia Bush

    • Society & Culture

Today on Work In Progress, Sophia is joined by Cindy Eckert (@cindypinkceo)!! Cindy is a serial-entrepreneur and highly vocal advocate for women, specifically in the areas of business and health. Over her impressive 24-year career in healthcare, Cindy created and sold two innovative pharmaceutical companies, Slate Pharmaceuticals and Sprout Pharmaceuticals. At Sprout, she forged a new path in women’s healthcare by creating Addyi, the first ever FDA approved drug for low sexual desire in women.

After selling it for $1B only to see it shelved, she fought tooth and nail to get it back and make sure that it was made available for women against all odds. She now mentors and invests in entrepreneurs with ground-breaking ideas through her investment fund, The Pink Ceiling. This “pinkubator” helps women do what Cindy has already done herself: achieve big success, take command in male dominated industries, and truly change the world. 

On today’s episode of Work in Progress, Sophia and Cindy discuss moving around as a kid, the importance of individuality in the workplace, and how the best way to change a problematic industry is to change it from within. They also explore the social conditioning of women around the subject of sexual pleasure, and why female sexual health is largely overlooked. This episode is about advocating for ourselves as women and demanding better. You’ll want to share this one with every woman you know.
