supporting women

The #WonderfulWomenDo campaign encourages, supports and celebrates women working in health and care.

It aims to highlight how women can, and already do, lift up and support those around them, and aims to break down the barriers to true equality and inclusivity in the workplace.

We want to uncover the amazing things so many of you do each day to support one another, and help spread hope and positivity across the health and care sector.

How to get involved

Whatever your role in health and care, the #WonderfulWomenDo campaign is a chance to thank those that have inspired you and made an impact on your career.

We want to celebrate instances where support exists for women, and encourage further acts of support to take place.

The campaign is about celebrating women, but it is not limited to women: people of any gender are encouraged to get involved and acknowledge women or other colleagues who have supported them or had a positive impact using the hashtag.

Join the conversation

Join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #WonderfulWomenDo.

Tweet your story of how a colleague has supported you throughout your career, thank them for their support, and share your own tips for supporting others.

Tag the person or people who has supported you, and encourage them and others to join in by thanking their inspirational person(s) – whatever their gender!

Follow the hashtag #WonderfulWomenDo to see other stories from the sector and gain inspiration for yourself and your organisation.

Three step guide

To get involved in the campaign there are three steps:

1. Firstly, connect… identify and connect with a colleague who has impacted on your career or has supported you to get where you are today.

2. Then thank them… tweet a thank you message using the hashtag #WonderfulWomenDo and tag the colleague if they are on Twitter to help them understand the positive impact they have had on you.

3. And finally share… encourage them to tweet, tag and share the person who has had an impact on their career, thereby helping to continue the wave of positivity.

So, remember ‘wonderful women do’… connect… thank… and share.

Please tweet and encourage colleagues in your organisation to tweet using the hashtag #WonderfulWomenDo

To support the campaign 20 senior women working in and with the NHS contributed to the report Brave, Compassionate, Confident, Kind: Succeeding as a Woman in Health and Care speaking candidly about their career journeys and how women they have known, and worked with have supported them on their leadership journey.
