Canadian Women in Global Health (#CWIGH)

Since its launch in 2018, Canadian Women in Global Health (CWIGH) has advanced discussion on gender equality in global health among researchers, practitioners, policymakers, students and young professionals online and at in-person events across Canada. The 2020 update to the CWIGH List will build on this momentum, showcasing the incredible achievements of Canadian women leaders in global health, fostering new and exciting collaborations, and advocating for gender equity in the health workforce and leadership more broadly.  

These women leaders’ contributions to global health may be in thought-leadership, implementation, field practice, diplomacy, mentoring, advocacy, or other areas.

The CWIGH List provides an opportunity to recognize the tremendous achievements of the established leaders in global health, as well as the women to watch in the near future. The list now includes Emerging Leaders who are in the early to mid-stages of their careers.
