HIMSS Women in Health IT Roundtable partners with collaborating organizations to offer opportunities to engage, empower, and collaborate with women making a difference in health IT.
#HealthITchicks is a grassroots, high-energy networking group of women (and men!) focused on raising awareness of gender-related issues in healthcare technology and the workplace at large. Launched by industry blogger Jennifer Dennard (@JennDennard) in 2013 as a somewhat monthly tweetchat, the community has evolved into a respected social networking movement that includes popular tweetchats, a growing LinkedIn group, annual HIMSS meetups, local events, and an annual holiday giving campaign that raises money for causes that closely align with our mission of "Doing Good & Giving Back."
The #healthITchicks community strives - above all - to help its members invest in the personal and professional lives of each other, and of those in need.
SIM Women is a women-based vertical inside the SIM organization, but it is meant to be inclusive, not divisive. All SIM members can share knowledge, request help or brainstorm on issues important to them via our events and discussion boards. Success stories can be shared by all involved. We are not looking to form a separate organization, but to bring together the men and women of SIM to leverage our common interests as well as our differences.

We aim to elevate and support the role of women in the discipline, collaboratively with the involvement of all genders through raising awareness on the issue and creating gender transformative leaders in global health. We believe that in order to reach equality within global health and achieve health and well-being for all, it is paramount we attain gender equality within all ranks of global health leadership. #WomeninGH
