Three dynamic women bring their realities of working for equity and justice from both inside and outside the world of healthcare. Moderator, Mary Ferguson, will lead the panelists in a discussion to address how race, gender, and class impact their lives and careers and the health outcomes of people for whom they care and advocate. Each woman is making unique contributions to our region. They interact with colleagues and clients in a range of settings, from within the area’s largest healthcare and education systems to community-based settings. The wealth of experience and passion they bring is inspiring. They offer a model of leadership grounded in self-awareness, lifelong learning, vulnerability, and curiosity. You will leave the session inspired by their creativity and challenged to examine your own path and impact on those around you.

Special instructions: Free parking is available in two lots on the west and north side of the building. Please enter the north parking lot from Washington Ave.
