“I don’t think there is a lack of women in Healthcare IT, I think we don’t see them and the wonderful impact they are creating in moving the industry forward. Women need to self-identify as leaders, same as men do”
says Director of Communities and Strategic Relationships, HIMSS EMEA, Angela Velkova.
Do you want to be a part of our mission to address the gender gap within the industry, to drive awareness of gender-related issues and to provide professional resources and greater recognition to women leaders making significant contributions to the field? Join us in Helsinki!
Members of the HIMSS Europe Women in Health IT Community (WHIT) will gather again in Helsinki during the HIMSS Europe & Health 2.0 Conference to discuss latest insights in the role and recognition of women in the industry, their efforts to encourage more women into digital health careers and put to the front the contributions women leaders are making in healthcare IT.

Are you passionate about the career development and recognition of contributions women leaders are making in healthcare IT? If so help us to develop new strategies for delivering services to empower women in healthcare in IT! Feel free to participate in our Women in Health IT Survey 2019.
The results of the survey will be used to analyze the professional challenges of women in Health IT and to find ways to overcome them. The full results of the survey will be announced at the Conference and will reveal not only how women responded but also the role HIMSS will play in raising awareness and empowering for equal rights and equal pay in health IT in the coming period.
