A national social and professional network for New Zealand women in medicine and health.

An evolving, community-led programme to nurture, support, and contribute to the personal and professional development of women in the NZ health sector. We hold webinars, social events, and do formal matching for those seeking a connection to a mentor or others in the field.

I gained so much. I feel confident and supported and so happy I was part of this programme.
