THE SCALE OF INEQUITY IS SIGNIFICANT

Warren Beach shares his decision to support women’s health and ambitions to addressing inequalities in his contribution to the Foundation’s Board of Directors’ $100,000 commitment.

“Women’s unique healthcare needs are under-served,” says Warren Beach. “Considering that over 50% of BC’s population are women, the scale of this inequity is significant and requires action to ensure women in our province receive the care they deserve. That’s why I volunteer my time as a Board member.”

“Men’s health has historically served as the default baseline on which our healthcare system was built. Today, we understand that best practices call for recognizing the uniqueness of women in tailoring treatment, research, and medications specific to their physiological needs.”

Inspired by the passion and support of our community, each and every member of the BC Women’s Health Foundation’s Board of Directors have joined together to donate $100,000 to support the Foundation’s COVID-19 Funds.

“As a donor, I respect that our Foundation is bold, entrepreneurial, and committed to strategically maximizing its impact on women’s health, which gives me confidence as a supporter,” says Warren. “To the women in my life, I am a partner, a son, a brother, and a father, but as a supporter of BC Women’s Health Foundation, I am also an investor in their health and their future.”

As the Foundation prepares to celebrate its 25th anniversary, our Board of Directors is reigniting their passion with 100% commitment, 100% dedication, and $100,000 to help ensure women have equitable access to the highest quality, specialized healthcare, when they need it most.

“Being a finance guy, I’m always thinking about impact and its relationship to return on investment, be it capital or time spent,” says Warren. “My decision to support BC Women’s Health Foundation was based on the opportunity to drive the types of change required within healthcare and the impact those changes can have on women’s health and society.

“There’s not one of us here in British Columbia that isn’t positively impacted by the women in our lives and our communities. When half our province is susceptible to inequities in healthcare, I believe we each have an opportunity to advance change on behalf of the women of BC and beyond.”

“I spend my time and money supporting the Foundation because I am confident that we are making a positive impact on women’s health.”
