Tomorrow Monday 8 March, Prerana Issar, NHS Chief People Officer and Samantha Allen, chair of the NHS Confederation’s Health & Care Women Leaders Network, will co-host a virtual celebration to mark International Women’s Day 2021.

The event is free to attend and open to women and their allies in health and care whatever their role, grade, ethnicity, gender identity, disability or sexual orientation. The programme for the day is designed to fit around busy working lives, so delegates are welcome to take part in as much or little of the event as they want to.

The theme for the day is #EverydayCourage in tribute to the courage being demonstrated by women in health and care during these extraordinary times.
