Delivered by the NHS Confederation, the Health and Care Women Leaders Network is a free network for all women working across health and care.
We connect through events, masterclasses, tweet chats and campaigns, and share learning through podcasts, blogs, videos and key reports.
Join us to celebrate our skills and talents, connect with colleagues and challenge gender stereotypes in the workplace.
Is this a network for me?
Membership of the Health and Care Women Leaders Network is open to all women working across health and care. If you are a woman, or identify as a woman, and you work in health and care, yes this is absolutely a network for you.
The network welcomes the support of allies with a shared commitment to gender equality and the wider equality, diversity and inclusion agenda. If you would like to find out more about how you can support our network email the team at email@example.com.
Listen to our chair Samantha Allen talk about the value of staff networks both nationally and locally and how to join our network in the short film below.
