While women at the helms of healthcare organizations remain few, many of the Ivy League business schools have sprouted ‘Manbassador’ clubs to help men engage in the conversation around gender parity and leadership. HBA Indiana wanted to bring this conversation to the executive level in healthcare to central Indiana.


Please join us for an evening panel conversation with four male executives who will share their insights on mentoring and sponsoring women, along with methods and ideas on increasing gender parity movements in their respective organizations and spheres of influence.
