Join Us For Our 2nd Webinar Of The Year!

#TIMESUP in Health Care?

Our webinar will be broadcast live on Wednesday, May 23rd, at 12:30-1:30 pm Eastern. This Webinar will describe the surprising lack of gender diversity in health care and identify potential causes and consequences.  In addition, strategies for healthcare organizations and for aspiring men and women leaders will be presented. 

Fewer than 20 percent of U.S. hospitals are led by women – as the CEO or on the senior leadership team. This is surprising given that nearly 78% of the healthcare labor force is composed of women, 70% of medical and health services mid-level managers are women, and more than half of all graduates of masters of healthcare management programs have been women for more than two decades. More importantly, perhaps, women are known to be the major purchasers of healthcare for their families and females of all ages accounted for over half of all expenses incurred at doctors’ offices. Women are the customers, the decision makers, and the workers in the healthcare field.  And yet, they are not well-represented in the hospital C-suite or boardroom.

Our webinar will be graciously hosted by Dr. Christy Harris Lemak. Dr. Lemak teaches and conducts scholarship in the areas of healthcare management and leadership development. She chairs UAB’s Department of Health Services Administration, home to eight educational programs, including the nation’s #2-ranked graduate health administration program and highly regarded programs in health informatics, healthcare quality and safety, and health services research.

Dr. Lemak’s research examines pay-for-performance programs for physicians, how Medicaid policy impacts hospitals and health plans, and issues of equity and inclusion in health care in order to create and support organizations in which all healthcare leaders can thrive.
