Upcoming Event: Empowering Women's Leadership in Global Health R&D
GHIT’s Empowering Women's Leadership in Global Health R&D symposium will take place on March 8th, 2019 - International Women's day- in Tokyo, Japan.
GHIT aims to connect and inspire the many like-minded female peers and leaders in Japan to pursue and support rewarding careers in global health R&D and explore and celebrate the many paths to leadership and change-making for women in this field.
Our program will focus on two major discussions - the first seeking to articulate the many forms of leadership in global health R&D and the changing circumstances of women’s leadership in the field. The second discussion will focus on career trajectories and mentorship, emphasizing the importance of finding and harnessing the support of female role models and male allies.
The 100-person symposium on March 8th will create opportunities for GHIT’s partners from many corners of the globe to share their experiences, unpack the legacy of women’s leadership in global health R&D, and acknowledge and share strategies to address the challenges. The symposium offers opportunities to engage women in this field across a multitude of organizations and workstreams. Participants include representatives from research, communications, policy, access, etc. Proceedings will be conducted in English.
We hope you will be able to join us and look forward to seeing you in Tokyo in March.
