    • Women Leaders in Global Health 2018 Time: All Day Locations: Off-Campus or Various Locations Details:

      BACKGROUND

      The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine is proud to be hosting the second annual Women Leaders in Global Health Conference on 8-9 November 2018. Building on last year’s hugely successful inaugural event at Stanford University, USA, the 2018 conference will:

      • highlight emerging and established women leaders in global health
      • engage in the latest thought leadership on advancing women in global health
      • support mentoring and skills building opportunities
      • support women in all forms of leadership from local communities to global organisations, from science to politics

      Registrations for the conference are now open to all and we are working to generate a buzz around the event and encourage attendees from a wide variety of sectors, ranging from policymakers to healthcare professionals.

      To help us achieve this we are asking our partners who are on social media to help us build interest and promote registration using their channels. This initial social media toolkit supports this promotion, and we will be in touch later this year with further materials around the conference. If you have queries on the toolkit, please contact WLGH18@lshtm.ac.uk
