Event description

Description

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to welcome you to Women in Global Health Sweden’s second meeting!

This report as well as the launch meeting we had in January, further empowered by the comments we have received after the event, inspired this invitation for a gathering of Women in Global Health Sweden.

This meeting will be an opportunity to present and discuss the recently published Lancet series on 'Women in science, medicine and global health'. We would also like to discuss the next steps and initiatives of our Swedish chapter. The discussion will be inspired by the world café concept, with discussions in groups, based on some overall questions.

With this meeting, we wish to invite participants to a social and inclusive discussion. To get input from all participants in the network is essential for the next steps in the movement!

The questions we seek to address during this meeting are:

  1. What do we experience as the biggest challenges for women working with global health in Sweden?

  2. What should the platform WGH Sweden target?

  3. What solutions, actions and strategies would be relevant in order to tackle these challenges?

This meeting will be held in Stockholm, but we would be happy to welcome participants from all across Sweden and beyond.

Please register early since we have limited spots.
