HIMSS recently launched a Women in HIT Roundtable and “a room of one's own" on Healthcare IT News to engage women in health IT in on-going conversations about the gender pay gap, to recognize influential women leaders, and empower women throughout the field.
The results of a 2015 HIMSS survey of 20,000 women in health IT on workplace, job satisfaction, recognition and opportunities to move up – coupled with another on salaries for women in this field compared with compensation for men – spoke clearly to HIMSS Executive Vice President Carla Smith. Both surveys revealed pressing needs for resources and community for women in health IT. Take part to learn about ways to collaborate with women making a difference sector wide.
