HIMSS Communities Workshop - Women in Health IT
Title: Achieving Gender Parity in the Digital Health Workforce

Moderator: Angela Velkova, HIMSS

Session description:
According to most national statistics around the world, women significantly outnumber men in the health and care workforce. Women in health IT is a different story. In recent years, there has been a gradual rise in women's participation in the digital health workforce, nonetheless, women are still underrepresented in health technology and tend to be less recognized for their contributions. As in most industries, there is a disappointing representation of women in executive management positions, and this ratio is probably the highest in healthcare. Only 13% of CEO positions in the US are held by women. Achieving gender parity and equal chances for career growth between men and women is still a distant reality for most of us. The webinar explores ways to increase the diversity of roles and to ensure equal prospects to leadership positions in the healthcare IT industry by highlighting the results of the Women in Health IT EMEA Annual Survey.
