Equity in the Alley – Medical Alley Association

Women to Watch

Women of all backgrounds are leading health and wellness transformation, innovation and success to advance our industry, technologies and equity around the globe.  

In recognition of these advancements, we've reimagined our Women in Health Leadership Series to feature leaders who identify as women and represent health systems, startups, public policy groups, Fortune 500 companies and more. This speaker series is now called Equity in the Alley and starts back up on September 14, 2022, and there will be two more events before year end. 

During these events, you will be welcomed to the beautiful Hutton House at Medicine Lake to listen to dynamic speakers share their journey to leadership, inspire innovation and energize you to pursue your passions and ideas to transform healthcare. There will also be time to socialize, network and enjoy lunch with women of all identities and backgrounds.
