Leicester Women in Medicine

Established in 2014, Leicester Women in Medicine is a network which aims to support and inspire individuals by developing a positive and active community.


LWIM provides a forum through which individuals can learn through the experience of others and foster a change in culture by enhancing leadership and management skills. Leicester Women in Medicine hopes to motivate and support women in medicine at all levels of career to achieve their personal goals and realise their talent through peer support and mentoring. 


LWIM holds themed sessions with inspirational speakers and networking sessions. LWIM is open to all colleagues, male and female, who are training or working in medicine and related academia. Network events are open to medical students, junior doctors, consultants from all specialities, University posts, GPs and NHS managers. 


Leicester Women in Medicine has been developed in close alliance with Sheffield Women in Medicine which was founded in 2013. LWIM was founded by Dr Kath Higgins in recognition of the need for a network inclusive to all which nurtures an ethos of inspiring and supporting the female workforce.
