Gender Equity Champions Convene for Monumental Events Ahead of the G20 Summit

HBA Equality Lounge

Propelling the gender equity conversation center stage, the HBA is joining forces with renowned advocacy ally The Female Quotient (The FQ) and our global Corporate Partners for two high-profile events in India.

These first-ever forums offer an unprecedented opportunity to bring visibility to HBA’s mission, our partners, and our worldwide impact.

Thanks to The FQ and the event sponsors, the HBA is able to offer opportunities for our global community to participate in one or both events.  Details for each event are noted below.

It is, without a doubt, the year that our United Force for Change is Powering the Possibilities


“Breaking Barriers: Empowering Women and Advancing Gender Equality in Healthcare Leadership”
A Global Forum at The Equality Lounge® at G20
Friday, 8 September, 1:15 PM IST
(3:45 AM ET in NYC / 9:45 AM CET in Brussels / 12:45 AM PT  in San Francisco)

The latest findings from the World Economic Forum underscore a disheartening reality: if we allow things to continue as they are, it will be 131 years before we achieve gender equality. This is untenable — the time for action is now! It is time to dismantle the obstacles that obstruct gender parity. It is time to empower and prepare young women for the dynamic careers that lie ahead. It is time to pave the way for improved financial well-being and enhanced health outcomes for everyone.

Join our global network for the livestream of The Female Quotient’s inaugural Equality Lounge® preceding the upcoming G20 Summit in India!

Women are leading the charge when it comes to advancing health equity, yet factors are inhibiting women’s progress in the field including a mass workforce exodus and a broken pipeline for women leaders. We also know that on a global scale both women’s health and financial wellness continue to vary widely causing major inequities and inability to improve economic status. Take part in the learnings and insights from this panel of prominent healthcare leaders who will address how the healthcare ecosystem can work together to break through barriers that have impeded progress, offer solutions that will drive meaningful change, and pave the way forward for improved financial well-being and enhanced health outcomes for women globally. HBA CEO Mary Stutts will guide this insightful and robust conversation.
