While women make up 77% of the NHS workforce, a closer look at leadership roles in the health service reveals significant under-representation.
Despite 44.7% of executive and non-executive roles in the NHS being held by women, this headline figure conceals significant geographical disparities across the country ranging from 15% to 78%. Factors include lack of role models, imposter syndrome, work-life balance and organisational culture.
This conference aims to address the issues surrounding the under-representation of women in healthcare leadership roles and inspire the female leaders of the future.
The programme will explore the barriers women face in developing roles in healthcare leadership and provide the practical support needed to overcome these challenges.
Key speakers will include Dame Jane Dacre, Professor of Medical Education at UCL and Ms Tamzin Cuming, Consultant Colorectal Surgeon and Chair of the Women in Surgery Forum at the Royal College of Surgeons. Panel discussions will feature guests Dr Simon Fleming, trauma and orthopaedic trainee, and Miss Rebecca Fisher, IST trainee. Round-table discussions will be led by Dame Professor Parveen Kumar, Dame Carol Black, Professor Henrietta Bowden-Jones and many more.
During this session, participants will be able to:
- Explore the preventable gender-related barriers within healthcare that impede women from obtaining leadership roles
- Provide an understanding of how to address the causes of under-representation
- Share the practical tools and support women need to further their leadership ambitions and career goals
A CPD certificate with 3 CPD credits will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
About the Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation
The Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation seeks to support and promote projects calculated to promote the advancement of research and education for the public benefit of preventative medicine or surgery and research.
“A healthy lifestyle can not only add years to your life but also life to your years.”
Up to half of all deaths in the UK are now the result of health choices that people make. Preventative healthcare consists of measure taken to prevent disease and illness and leads to people in both developed and developing countries enjoying longer and healthier lives. It is the future of healthcare and, with increasingly stretched budgets, preventing disease and illness represents the most effective use of scarce financial and human healthcare resources. These are the reasons why the Lord Leonard and Lady Estelle Wolfson Foundation is focusing on preventative healthcare.
The Foundation will fund cutting-edge research and related initiatives which will support pioneering research that is, increasingly, demonstrating this important cultural/healthcare link.
