WHCM events are opportunities for our members to discuss shared topics of interest and to build relationships. The power of networking cannot be underestimated. By exchanging ideas and experiences, women can successfully navigate the career transitions, leadership roles, and unexpected challenges inherently part of the healthcare environment. Women at all stages of their careers can reach a higher level by helping one another advance and learn.
Here’s what members have said about our networking events
My entire career trajectory was shaped by Women in Health Care Management. It is where I learned to speak up and advocate for myself. It was an environment that provided unconditional support and commitment to help each other advance in our respective careers.
Never underestimate the power of relationships with colleagues and peers. New ideas, partnerships, and opportunities all grow through the exciting education and exchange that happens with WHCM.
I would never be where I am today if it was not for the friendships I developed with my WHCM colleagues! It is so important to build and maintain your networks to help you reach your goals. WHCM offers a wide range of networking opportunities and career advice for women at all stages of career development.
