2021 International Women’s Day: Advancing Gender Equity in Health

March 8 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EST

Organized by Seed Global Health

2021 International Women’s Day: Advancing Gender Equity in Health

March 8, 2021


Women make up 70% of the health workforce and deliver care to around 5 billion people globally. Creating safe and enabling environments where they can work to their full potential is critical to achieving health for all and improving the well-being of their communities. To date, policies have attempted to fit women into inequitable systems; now we need to fix the system and environment to create decent work for women and close gender gaps in leadership and pay.

On International Women’s Day, Seed Global Health (Seed) in collaboration with Medtronic Foundation, Women in Global Health, and our International Year of Health and Care Workers campaign partners—Frontline Health Workers Coalition, G4 Alliance, IntraHealth International, and Smile Train will host an online conversation under the theme ‘Choose to Challenge.’ Women leaders at the forefront of providing care and investing in the health workforce will share their perspectives on what it will take to challenge the status quo and new solutions to ensure gender equity.
