Health Care Change BeginsBegins with Us

Women of Impact for Health Care is a group of female executives representing all sectors of the healthcare industry. We believe that health care for all will be improved with more women leadership.

The Women of Impact are committed to these core tenets

We support women as critical change-makers and conveners.

We commit that our inquiry is driven by a sense of discovery and humility.

We respect all people, their journeys, and the obstacles and biases they have faced.

We look where we don’t see, or don’t want to see, problems.

We respect facts and evidence but also listen to and trust lived experiences.

We look where we don’t see, or don’t want to see, problems.

We co-create solutions.

We own the responsibility to create the change we want to see in the world.

We look where we don’t see, or don’t want to see, problems.
