women leaders network

Networking events are a prominent feature of the Health & Care Women Leaders Network - we profile key speakers that are engaging, motivating and inspirational.

Our network events so far, have covered everything from professional development, mindfulness, resilience, key reports and policy and of course, inspirational leadership journeys.

Our previous guests have included Dame Stella Rimington, the former head of MI5 and Helen Sharman, the first British astronaut.

Past events

We held a session at Confed19 in June 2019 looking at 'How to achieve a winning mindset' presented by performance psychologist, Michael Caulfield. Take a look at our vox pop video to get a feel for what attendees thought of the session.

Our second annual Health & Care Women Leaders Network Conference took place on 1 November 2018 in London.

The event brought together members of the NHS Confederation and NHS Employers run network of senior and aspiring female leaders working in health and care under the theme of #liftasyouclimb.

The day saw presentations from several speakers including Dr Kathy McClean from NHS Improvement and Professor Ruth Sealy, talking about the NHS Women on Boards: 50:50 by 2020 report, a session which was subsequently covered in this article by our media partner the Health Service Journal (HSJ). Two of the HSJ’s top 50 CEO’s of 2018, Marianne Griffiths and Dr Navina Evans, also joined fellow CEO and network chair Samantha Allen to share their leadership journeys.

Speakers from within the public and private sector were also in attendance, including the Greater London Authority, Belinda Parmar from The Empathy Business and Saatchi & Saatchi London, alongside breakout sessions on mentoring and how to set up a women’s network in your organisation.
