XX in Health: Women & the Healthcare Revolution

Women provide a unique perspective in healthcare, yet are underrepresented in leadership positions. While women make up approximately 73% of medical and health services managers, only 4% of healthcare CEOs are women. This panel will explore the systemic problems prohibiting gender diversity, the need for more female leaders in health, and opportunities in this growing market. Learn from female leaders across healthcare representing Stanford's School of medicine, GE Healthymagination, Kauffman Foundation, and PepsiCo.
