Women in Leadership
Bringing women together across TeamHealth to develop leaders and mentors in our communities.
The Women in Leadership program was developed in 2016 to encourage women through collaboration and strategies to support women leaders within TeamHealth. Creating a mentor program, providing networking opportunities, identifying and developing talented women and promoting women leaders within TeamHealth are just some of the goals of this program. Through the creation and development of this program, TeamHealth helps to improve the recruitment and retention of women and promote a community of continuous learning, encouragement of female leaders and promotion of diversity in the workplace.
