Women leaders during the COVID-19 pandemic
With more than half of its national COVID-19 response team composed of women, Canada has emerged as a leading country in putting women’s voices and representation at the centre of its pandemic response.

In light of this achievement, WGH Canada is delighted to invite you to our second event taking place virtually on December 9th at 2 pm EST under the theme of “Women Leaders During the COVID-19 Pandemic”. Join us and hear from four incredible Canadian women leaders who will be sharing their experiences of working and leading during the COVID-19 pandemic and discussing the importance of gender parity in global health security leadership.
