WOMEN at HLTH shines a light on some of the initiatives across the health industry that are addressing the disparity of women in executive and board roles within health organizations.


We’re working closely with Oliver Wyman on a women in healthcare leadership survey. Our hope is that we can demystify perceptions of “good” leadership, create awareness of where we differ and converge on aspirations and expectations, and ultimately make invisible barriers visible for all. Research abounds on how diversity leads to better results and a much more productive and creative workforce. We’ll be sharing the results of the survey with Oliver Wyman on stage during opening remarks on Sunday night at HLTH.
