As we entered the 2018-2019 academic year at Yale University, we hit a series of trailblazing milestones. 2018 marked the 100-year anniversary of women at the Yale School of Medicine. Coincidentally, 2019 marks 150 years of women at Yale University and 50 years since Yale College became a co-educational institution. 

As we reflect on the shattering of these glass ceilings and the challenges that lie before us, we must remember that equity must leave no stone unturned.  Thus, we must explore the history of women in healthcare leadership and how women have reshaped, reformed, and revolutionized our
industry.

For this occasion, we are excited to announce the Yale Healthcare Conference’s first special Thursday Evening panel will focus on the role of women in healthcare. 

“The Woman’s Table,” by Maya Lin (BA 1981, M.Arch 1986), is a monument outside Sterling Library that commemorates the presence of women at Yale University.

Join us on Thursday, April 11th at 5:00pm for a conversation with five brilliant women in healthcare leadership who will share their journeys navigating careers in a field historically linked with sexism, what lessons they have learned over time, and what they see as frontiers in healthcare where women can lead the charge. Let us take this opportunity to gather in solidarity and learn from the wisdom of the women who have paved the way to our current successes and who will lead us into the future of healthcare.
