About UHNWomen

UHNWomen is a program to help empower and further uplift TeamUHN and A Healthier World. Women face unique gender-based challenges that span across a wide spectrum. These experiences impact everyone and compromise organizational outcomes – not only in terms of well-being, but also performance. An uplifted culture inspiring and generating interpersonal and organizational support, openness, resources, partnership, multi-directional learning and mentorship, and more, will improve outcomes for all, including staff and patients and across career levels.

Project Purpose

Creation of a multi-year strategic plan with implementation of early, visible wins is needed to re-launch and establish UHNWomen and draw on opportunities to align with numerous resources in research, education, skills-building, networking, both internally to UHN and externally.
