Healthy women are critical for the health of our families, communities, businesses, and the broader economy. Yet despite decades of dramatic progress and development, there is still an ongoing gender gap in healthcare. This impacts women’s engagement in their workplaces and their ability to achieve their professional aspirations.

That’s why BC Women’s Health Foundation is thrilled to bring back Healthy Women, Healthy Companies – our annual virtual event focused on improving women’s health in today’s workplace!

Join us this International Women’s Day as we discuss the unique mental health challenges faced by women in the workplace + share strategies for fostering healthier work environments!

Our panel will feature professionals from varying backgrounds in business, entrepreneurship, and women’s health who are eager to share their experiences and learnings. During the event, we’ll break up the talking with a grounding meditation and a guided movement to keep the energy and conversations flowing. The evening will end with a question period to learn even more for our esteemed panelists.

Whether you are a working professional wanting to learn strategies for recognizing and addressing inequities in the workplace, or whether you are a leader at your company wanting to continue to cultivate a healthy working environment – this event is for you!

Exceptional healthcare doesn’t just happen. It takes all of us, working together to give women the healthcare they deserve. 100% proceeds will support BC Women’s Health Foundation to ensure women have equitable access to the highest quality healthcare when, where, and how they need it.

*We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to attend this virtual event regardless of their financial situation. Please contact Marissa.Kingzett@bcwomensfoundation.org to learn more about our event scholarships.

Healthy Women, Healthy Companies 2021 Reviews:

“As a supervisor to employees, I want to make a healthy workplace for my team, and [the panelists] had the best tips and frameworks to implement. [In virtual events, I look for] participatory sections to stay engaged – but without requiring people to turn on their audio or video. You nailed that!” – 2021 Attendee

“As someone who is still trying to navigate her early twenties, I found myself feeling less anxious after attending. It was like getting to hang out with a bunch of sisters who were sharing how to develop my career while also reinforcing that you don’t need to be perfect or hustle all of the time to be successful.” – 2021 Attendee
