In our mission to advance women in healthcare and achieve gender parity, every woman in a senior leadership role is a step in the right direction. However, there is still more work to be done. What if the source of the problem is not the "glass ceiling" but rather a "broken rung" at the first step on the corporate ladder.

Join us as we take a different perspective on closing the gender gap. Inspired by the 2019 Women in the Workplace study report (led by McKinsey & Co and, our esteemed panel of HBA Luminaries are coming together to discuss the challenges that women encounter early in their careers.
