HIMSS Europe and Health 2.0 Conference
Sitges, Barcelona 27-29 May 2018
Members of the HIMSS Europe Women in Health IT Community (WHIT) – HIMSS Europe’s newest community – will gather again in Sitges during the HIMSS Europe & Health 2.0 Conference to discuss their efforts to encourage more women into digital health careers and recognise the contributions women leaders are making in healthcare IT.
Thanks to all those 650+ guests that joined us in Las Vegas under the motto of “equal pay for equal work” on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2018!
And to all those that are new to the WHIT community:
Join us to recognise the contributions of women! Women in our community include doctors, nurses, executives, IT professionals, educators, entrepreneurs, researchers, scientists, students, and more.
We will keep the spotlight on achievements and ongoing commitment by women leaders in digital health professions in Europe. We’ve made it our priority 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.
We cordially invite you to meet us on at the Networking BBQ on Sunday 27 May at 7pm CET for the “Women in Health IT Reception” honouring the female cohort of the HIMSS Europe Future50 leaders.
In the meantime, hear from us in our latest blog here and don’t miss out taking part in our latest survey to determine what challenges women in healthcare IT face and what opportunities they have leveraged along their career path.
The results of the survey will be used to analyse 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.
We look forward to meeting you!
