#NorthInnovationWomen 2019 list honours over 300 health innovators

Northern Health Science Alliance announce this year's #NorthInnovationWomen list

To mark International Women’s Day 2019, the Northern Health Science Alliance has brought together a list of inspirational women making their mark on the world of innovation – particularly in health science.

Following a call on social media for nominations, more than 300 suggestions were submitted by NHSA followers eager to shine the spotlight on deserving friends, colleagues and peers within the health sector and other innovative fields.

Nicola Wilson, NHSA Interim CEO, said: “We are passionate about gender equality and we need to do all we can to promote the amazing women working hard within our sector if we are to inspire future generations to follow us and consider a career in health science.

“At the NHSA we’re fortunate enough to work with some fantastic women who are achieving great things within their fields of work across the North. This is why we were inspired to create a platform where their efforts could be acknowledged.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the response to #NorthInnovationWomen this year and we’re delighted to have more than 300 people on the list. Many thanks to everyone who nominated someone and well done to all those included.”

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This year’s theme is #BalanceforBetter, which aims to provide a unified direction to guide and galvanize continuous collective action to help forge a more gender-balanced world.

The full #NorthInnovationWomen list is below. If we have missed anyone, please do feel free to tweet us @The_NHSA and we can update the list.
