Event description

Description

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is proud to be hosting the second annual Women Leaders in Global Health Conference on 8-9 November 2018.

Women are vital to the advancement of global health, making up 75% of the healthcare workforce – yet occupying less than 25% of influential leadership positions. WLGH18 will bring together established and emerging leaders from across sectors and cultures to work towards gender equity in health leadership and to improve health for all.

Book your place for two days packed with talks, panel discussions, interactive workshops, skills sessions and more. There will also be a mentorship programme open to conference delegates.
