I have always been inspired by my grandmothers and my own mother,” Dr. Rahm shares. “They are wonderful and strong women, kind and nurturing human beings. I deeply respect their core values.” Reflecting on influential females, Dr. Rahm admires Eleanor Roosevelt’s commitment to human rights, particularly her advocacy for civil and women’s rights.

Mother Teresa’s selfless dedication to helping the impoverished is truly inspiring for Dr. Rahm as she continues her journey. Her acts of kindness and the establishment of the Missionaries of Charity motivate Dr. Rahm to find ways to make a positive impact through compassion and service.

Achieving Equilibrium

I’m not sure I’ve ever been able to achieve a perfect work-life balance,” Dr. Rahm reflects. “Each day, I make an effort to prioritize my children, family and personal growth in the morning, as well as in the evening when I reflect on the day.” Throughout the day, Dr. Rahm’s focus remains on her family and children recognizing the importance of actively spending quality time with them.

Leadership Lessons

Dr. Rahm reflects on her leadership approach and expresses that running any organization involves strategic thinking and a willingness to take well-considered, calculated risks while adapting in the face of change. She states, “I continually craft a vision that resonates with my values and long-term goals, involving my team in the process.”

Reflecting on gender-related barriers, Dr. Rahm acknowledges that most women have encountered gender-related barriers. Starting her career in the male-dominated pharmaceutical industry, she notes the disparity in patent ownership, with women holding only 7% of patents across the US. “It’s important to focus on consistently being your best self, your most brilliant self while psychologically knowing that often we may need to burst through those gender barriers politely, but with fortitude,” she advises.

Defining feminism, Dr. Rahm states, “At its core, women deserve the same rights as men, whether it be equal pay, gender norms, self-expression, or reproductive rights.” Growing up in Southeast Missouri, she experienced firsthand the challenges of navigating a ‘good old boys’ network. “That upbringing taught me a lot about gender roles, biases and how to better deal with obstacles,” she shares. Through her experiences, Dr. Rahm emphasizes the importance of equality and breaking down barriers for women in all aspects of life.
