These Powerful Women Executives Want to Help You Climb Healthcare’s Leadership Ladder [SlideShare]

Women now represent about 20 percent of all healthcare leaders. But as they rise through the ranks toward the CEO level, this number shrinks to only 4 percent.

That creates a serious blind spot for our industry — especially in a society where female consumers make the lion’s share of healthcare decisions for their families.

Janet Young, MD, and Cyndy Flores, PA-C, are out to change that. As female healthcare executives, they know what it takes to reach the top. In today’s SlideShare, they offer guidance on starting out, finding mentors, asking for what you want, and much more.

The following is adapted from their presentation at CEP’s 2017 Women in Medicine (CWIM) forum.

Great presentation! Check out thisTED talk by Reshma Saujani: Girls who code. She is doing awesome things to help change the way girls/women engage in the business world.
