Join us on September 26, 2023 for our fall Equity in the Alley event, featuring Kate Stewart, VP and GM, ENT, Stryker. 

We host this event series each year featuring leaders who identify as women and represent health systems, startups, public policy groups, Fortune 500 companies, and more. We created Equity in the Alley to celebrate the women who are leading health and wellness transformation—advancing our industry, technologies, and equity around the globe.

To start the event, you will have an hour of networking time over fresh coffee and tea. As we sit down for a plated breakfast, special guest speaker Kate Stewart will share her journey to leadership, inspire innovation, and energize you to pursue your passions and ideas to transform healthcare. There will also be time for a Q&A with Kate at the end of the event.
