Join us in London on Thursday 1 November for the annual Health & Care Women Leaders Network conference.
Our theme is ‘Lift as you climb: women leaders inspiring and influencing change’ and the day will be a combination of plenary, breakout and panel sessions in which we aim to tackle the barriers that exist for women wanting to take their next steps into leadership.
