Global Perspectives: Women in Leadership in Public Health

November 2 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Join us virtually or in-person for a conversation on the imperative of women in leadership in public health. Hear perspectives from four panelists working around the globe: two alumni from the Evans School’s International Program in Public Health Leadership in Ethiopia and Uganda; one public health practitioner in India; and one public health practitioner in the United States.

Light refreshments and networking opportunities will be available at the event for in-person attendees.

Gender gaps within public health organizations are persistent and have been exasperated by the COVID-19 pandemic, systematically preventing individuals who identify as women from advancing to positions of power and influence and impacting health system delivery to women and society overall. Register to hear these public health leaders discuss the societal, organizational, and individual factors that shape the ability of individuals who identify as women to engage within public health organizations, and how they have successfully navigated bureaucratic health systems to overcome institutionalized gender norms and advance in their careers.
