Emerging Women Leaders in Global Health
About Our Program
Many events, conferences, and programs designed to support women leaders in global health are developed by and feature senior leaders. But there is clear demand from young women in global health for resources to support their networks and leadership growth. We have developed a unique near-peer approach to women’s leadership programming that focuses on building essential leadership skills and strengthening global networks for emerging women leaders in training and the early stages of their career.
How to get Involved
Check out our monthly seminar series, featuring high-level women leaders in global health largely working in non-academic fields. During each talk we explore our speaker's leadership journey and critical lessons learned.
Join the network. Our active online network, based in Slack, features 600+ members from around the world engagin in discussion on women's leadership issues. The network provides spce for women to connect individually, in common-interest groups, to find and post jobs, to seek advice, and share insights.
Take a course. This 3-credit JHSPH Summer Institute course launched in Summer, 2021 to strengthen women's essential skills for leadership.
Participants of our working group activities in 2020 and 2021 were invited to join a writing group, designed to create a set of manuscripts about the program and to be published in a Special Issue. Updates forthcoming!
