Kayla Young Of Phase Genomics On How To Create More Inclusive Workplaces

Kayla Young, chief operating officer at Seattle-based life science company Phase Genomics, discusses her experience in Washington’s life sciences and offers insights to other employees and companies in the industry.

Young began her career at Life Science Washington (LSW), where she supported entrepreneurs by providing education and serving as a mentor for LSW’s Washington Innovation Network (WIN) program. The experience gave Young an introduction to life science companies and executives and provided valuable exposure to the decision-making processes.

While Young now oversees operations at Phase Genomics, she continues to support LSW’s WIN program, and she now serves as a board member at Life Science Washington Institute (LSWI), LSW’s sister organization.

“As a non-profit organization dedicated to entrepreneurial education and fostering the life science ecosystem in the northwest, LSWI has positioned itself to nurture the next generation of diverse life science companies,” Young said. “What sets LSWI apart is their comprehensive commitment to enhancing inclusivity at every stage of their pipeline.”
