Joining Jordan Sollof on this episode is Sylvia Stevenson and Dr Lia Ali to discuss women in digital healthcare leadership and give a sneak preview of a session on the topic that will take place at this year’s Digital Health Summer Schools in Birmingham.
Stevenson, head of diversity, equity and inclusion development at Integrated Care 24, and Dr Ali, consultant psychiatrist at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and clinical advisor in the transformation directorate of NHS England, explain some key challenges women face in attaining leadership positions in digital healthcare.
The pair then share some examples of innovative approaches that women have brought to digital healthcare leadership, before talking about the importance of the Digital Health Networks in empowering women.
Finally, the Summer Schools speakers describe the ways in which men can be allies and advocates for women in digital healthcare leadership, before giving one final plug to their session taking place on Friday 28 July, titled ‘Shaping the future: women in digital healthcare leadership’.
The session will be chaired by Ayesha Rahim and will feature a panel that also includes Aasha Cowey and Stacey Hatton alongside Sylvia and Lia. It will take place in Lecture Theatre 1 at 3.15pm, running until 4pm.
