WomenLift Health Stakeholder Analyses Webinar

This webinar unveiled the findings from WomenLift Health’s comprehensive stakeholder analysis carried out in West Africa (Nigeria), East Africa (Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda), South Asia (India), North America, and Europe, shedding light on the barriers, opportunities, and recommendations for promoting women’s leadership in global health.

The Leadership Journey

WomenLift Health believes that global health challenges will not be solved unless talented women have a seat at the table. The Leadership Journey is designed to give talented women leaders the tools – confidence, networks, understanding of barriers – along with peer, mentor and coach support, to successfully use their voice, expertise and leadership skills for health impact. To us, success is not exclusively defined by a title or a salary increase, but by expanding the power and influence of talented women in global health.
