from the participants in the US program
The Women in AMIA Leadership Program is absolutely essential for increasing the number of women who advance into leadership roles in Health and Information Technology.
The program helped me see that leadership is a reflection of my personality and values, improved my self confidence and made leadership appealing to me.
I was unsure about taking on a leadership role. Now I am excited about doing it!
The Women in AMIA Leadership Program is interdisciplinary, comprehensive and provides essential training, coaching and networking opportunities to help women embrace challenges and to cultivate the skills needed to join the ranks of senior health informatics leaders.
The program made me realise that
- Leadership starts with leading self;
- Women often have more power than they think; and
- Women can channel this power through acting on their vision.
