Empowering women in healthcare through career development and networking opportunities
WHCM is the major networking organization in the greater Boston area focused on professional women with careers in all sectors of the healthcare industry.
Discover how WHCM can help your career
Join Women in Healthcare Management as we hear about some of the key issues in health care (both state and federal) for the coming year. Topics to be covered include COVID-19, telehealth, childcare, behavioral health, etc.
Alexandria Icenhower, Federal Relations Manager, Massachusetts Medical Society, will discuss issues from a federal standpoint, and State Senator Cindy Friedman, Fourth Middlesex District, Senate Chair, Joint Committee on Health Care Financing, will bring a state-level perspective to the discussion.
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
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.
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.
