Women In Leadership: Thursday, 1 October 2020

Thursday, March 26th, 2020


2:00 PM INTERACTIVE SESSION - Panel Discussion: Say Goodbye to Rigid Hierarchical Patriarchies! Building a Culture that Supports the Next Generation of Female Leaders

Healthcare at its core remains rigid, hierarchical and male-dominated, which drastically needs to change if it is to support the next generation of female leaders. Greater opportunity, respect, diversity are key elements for improving workplace culture.

This panel will discuss each in turn and the important role female leaders play to drive this shift:
  • Opportunity: How can you promote greater opportunity in the workplace?
  • Respect: Everyone is deserving of respect, no matter their age or level of experience
  • Diversity: Greater diversity in age, culture and gender is important for varied opinions and a richer team and culture
