What We Do

The WomenLift Health Theory of Change

WomenLift Health is based on the theory that advancing accomplished mid-career women to senior positions in global health will lead to improved health outcomes and advancements in gender equality. WomenLift Health believes that elevating these women to senior positions requires both investment in their individual leadership skills and contributing to and influencing change in the environment in which they live and work. In the absence of this support many of these women will be unable to navigate their organizational and societal environment, and women leaders will continue to be underrepresented in leadership positions in the global health arena. Change only happens when individuals take action.  WomenLift Health is designed to support people to be change agents – as individuals, leaders and members of organizations, and influencers of society.   Together, small changes add-up to big results. 

Strategy for Transformative Change

WomenLift Health will implement a portfolio of interventions that reinforce transformative change and that ripple out to reach an increasing number of women and men.

WomenLift Health is unique in that it is designed to achieve:

• Transformative Change: Catalyzing behavior change of individual women and influencing change in the society and organizations in which they live and work.

• Scale: Reaching tens of thousands of women through a portfolio of interventions.

• Diversity: Engaging and empowering mid-career women in global health from different countries, cultures, sectors, and disciplines.
