Welcome to She Leads Heathcare!

To improve healthcare disparities, advance scientific knowledge, develop innovation in medicine and run our hospitals, we need the knowledge and talents of our entire dedicated workforce. Leadership diversity --in all forms-- is one of healthcare's greatest, yet underutilized, assets. We are committed to supporting all healthcare professionals as that is the surest path to optimizing the health of every person.

Why focus on women healthcare leaders?

The answer is simple. We are underutilizing a huge component of our healthcare workforce, and there are well documented gaps in nearly every aspect of professional advancement.

  • Mission and Vision
  • Leadership Style and Skill
  • Negotiations and Advocacy

A Call to Healthcare Leaders

Ending Gender Workforce Disparities is an Ethical Imperative

We need your help to disseminate this call to action, and the research to support it. Join us by downloading and disseminating the Be Ethical Campaign white paper and the Need Her Science Campaign infographic to as many leaders and colleagues as possible.
Conference organizers can order #BeEthical and #NeedHerScience gear (SWAG) to spread the word and keep the message “top of mind” for healthcare leaders. This will also help to support disparities research for women in medicine and our patients.
