Could you be a leader in healthcare?

The Leeds Female Leaders Network is looking for new members for 2015/16. Find out how it could help you.


There are still fewer women than men in senior healthcare and clinical academic positions, in Leeds and across the UK.  The Leeds Female Leaders Network aims to inspire women working in healthcare by building confidence, skills and contacts.  It brings together like-minded people into a supportive network, linked with other regions and sectors.

This joint initiative between the University of Leeds and the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust consists of three elements:

  • A twice-yearly event
  • Networking opportunities across the Leeds Partnership
  • A web presence which will contain activity updates, resources and a secure area for discussion groups and information sharing.

Network member and Associate Professor in the Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine,  Dr Ai Lyn Tan says: "The Leeds Female Leaders Network provided me with great opportunities to meet like-minded people outside of my department who have the same drive, so we can share experiences and learn about leadership. It made me realise 'I'm not alone in my journey', and I get the benefit of being inspired by great leaders in the organised events."

You’ll be able to find out more at the Network’s first event of 2015/16.

The event takes place on Wednesday 30 September.  The theme is ‘Innovative Leadership’, and the CEO of Welcome to Yorkshire, Sir Gary Verity, will be the guest speaker.
