Women’s Health Leadership Network

OWHN’s Women’s Health Leadership Network is an online forum on topics central to women’s leadership, including leadership development, community engagement, sex and gender based analysis, social determinants of health and health equity. This network has developed out of the women’s health leadership programming which OWHN carried out between 2010 and 2013, to build and strengthen the ability of women and communities in Ontario to act on their health issues.

The leadership network offers links to publications, learning modules, videos and other relevant resources. We have also compiled a list of useful information sharing links, such as electronic bulletins, listservs and newsletters. These resources will be complemented by a number of blogs, online community engagement events, including webinars and Twitter chats, to offer learning, discussion and networking opportunities.

We have also launched a new project, Leaders in Women’s Health, to highlight cross-sectoral women’s health leaders, their work, vision for women’s health and recommended resources.

The leadership network will continue to grow as new resources, events and profiles of women’s health leaders are added. We welcome suggestions of resources, topics and leaders that you think should be included on the site.

The Women’s Health Leadership Network was developed with funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
