Women Leading in Health

Education for Health - Women Leaders Podcasts

Women make up over 76% of the NHS workforce, yet, are greatly underrepresented at a leadership level.

In this series of podcasts, our Chief Executive, Dr Linda Edwards, explores the skills and mind-set required to lead in the world of health and medicine. Through conversations with women from a range of leadership roles, Linda discusses career pathways, leadership style, defining career moments and maintaining a balance in and outside of careers.

Whether it be an emphasis on teamwork, communication or adaptability, find out what makes these female leaders tick and how to model their success.
