Women Speakers in Healthcare
Australia & New Zealand
at every healthcare event
Our aim is for every healthcare event to have balanced gender representation. Too often, we hear that conference organisers 'couldn't find a woman' to speak. Time & time again we see predominantly male speakers on conference panels, plenary sessions & keynotes.
We know this is not for a lack of phenomenal women speakers. We know these women exist & we want to make sure that they are offered the same opportunities as their male colleagues to speak at healthcare events & conferences.
We are Women Speakers in Healthcare Australia & New Zealand. We are building Australia & New Zealand's largest database of female healthcare professionals who have an interest in speaking at these events, so that conference organisers know exactly where to find us.

Find A Speaker
Our database of women speakers includes high profile women in healthcare.
Fill in our Speaker Request Form & we will search through the database to connect you with a suitable speaker for your event.
If you identify as a woman you are welcomed to join our speaker database.
All professions are encouraged to join.
We want women from across the spectrum of healthcare careers. Patients & carers are also welcome to join.
Joining our database means that we can connect event organisers with inspirational women whom may not have otherwise been invited.
Male allies can help by sharing the database sign up form & nominating female colleagues for speaking events.
We encourage you to ask event organisers that the events you are invited to speak at are gender balanced.
