Cochrane's 2023 International Women’s Day Event - Recording available

Women at Cochrane

In recognition of 2023 International Women's Day (IWD), Cochrane hosted a virtual event. The event featured a panel of accomplished women from diverse backgrounds discussing the IWD 2023 theme of #EmbraceEquity.

The panelists will shared their experiences and insights on topics such as gender equity in clinical trials, the impact of gender on health outcomes, and strategies for promoting equity in healthcare and in evidence synthesis. 

Tiffany Duque, Cochrane US Senior Officer and Panelist says, "The 2023 IWD event was run by our talented Cochrane US Mentees. This is the second cohort through the Cochrane Mentoree program. They come from 12 different countries and range from students to early career professionals; all with a shining future in Cochrane."

"We were excited to bring together this group of dynamic women to discuss issues of equity in healthcare," says Paola Andrencci, Cochrane US Mentor Program coordinator and lead on this event. "Their diverse perspectives and experiences will help us identify the barriers to equity and work towards solutions that benefit all patients. We thank everyone from the Cochrane community and beyond that joined us for this event!"

We welcome everyone to watch a recording of the event:
