Following on from 2019 highly successful events, Women in HealthTech (WiHT) invites you to join them on the 4th of March 2020 for an evening of networking and a showcase of the latest health technologies developed in New Zealand.

Our first event of the year 2020 will be held at the University of Auckland in the Fale Pasifika, an iconic building  bringing together the University and Pacific communities. This is the perfect venue to represent diversity and inclusion which are the core of WiHT mission.

The Fale large open floor is perfect for networking, drink and mingle around the exhibit on the latest health technology developed by MedTech CoRE researchers.

Women in HealthTech's mission is to empower women and diversity to flourish at all levels of the HealthTech sector by promoting and creating cultural change within organisational opportunities and leadership. Diversity cuts across all aspects of professional and personal endeavours; it has been shown that organisations that embrace diversity at all levels are creating more positive opportunities than those who don't.

WiHT is purposely raising awareness of the positive aspects of diversity and providing opportunities for everyone (regardless of gender, age, ethnicity or culture) to participate in an array of educational and networking events, opportunities for mentoring between members and collaborating with other organisations in health, women's affairs and business innovation.

WiHT is a collaborative group that has been formed by the following founding organisations

NEW ZEALAND HEALTH IT (NZHIT)

CONSORTIUM FOR MEDICAL DEVICE TECHNOLOGIES (CMDT)

MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATION OF NEW ZEALAND (MTANZ)

These three organisations have a common interest of representing a range of thinking and assisting with affecting cultural change in the HealthTech sector. Combined, they represent close to 300 companies and organisations involved in a broad cross-section of activities from early stage digital health and medical device start-ups, research and clinical entities, healthcare providers, large to small New Zealand and multi-national companies.
