Events Programme

Wihn events programme

The WiHN Events Programme offers a variety of workshops, guest speaker events and networking opportunities throughout the year. The events will cover a range of topics rooted in women, leadership and health. The knowledge, skills and networks developed from these events aim to equip wahine with the experience and support needed to succeed personally and in a health related degree and career. 

purpose of THE programme

The programme has the purpose to further the social interests and educational value of women studying health related degrees. By complementing the WiHN Mentoring Programme, it serves as a platform for women to form valuable networks with other women studying health related degrees and working within the health sector. Some events will have special focus on helping participants to develop skills that will support the transition into the workforce and enable to thrive within the health sector.

The programme is open to members and non-members, with priority entry to events granted to WiHN members. Some events may be restricted to women studying specific health related degrees, but largely we welcome youth of all genders and degrees of studies to attend and participate in the conversation of women's role and rights in the health sector.
