Welcome to the London Women's Leadership Network


London Leadership Academy has established a Women’s Leadership Network. This network aims to create a happier, healthier workforce – and to shape an NHS leadership that is truly diverse and inclusive at every level. Led by NHS staff of all genders - by women, for women, and with men - the London Women’s Leadership Network will drive an innovative and transformative approach to gender equality that demands real and lasting change.

Promoting a diverse and inclusive leadership is crucial both for the development of a strong NHS workforce as well as for those concerned with equality more generally. While many female leaders are breaking through into top positions, they remain the exception rather than the rule. London Leadership Academy has launched a network that will
explore and dismantle hidden barriers, promote and advocate for a more inclusive NHS across London. Please join us and become an advocate for gender equality in the NHS across London.

Upcoming Events

The London Women's Leadership Academy is running a range of Masterclasses and Workshops that are free to attend for network members.

7th September - Joining the Dots between Diversity, Patient Health and Innovation

This session will be run by Simon Fanshawe, OBE, of Diversity by Design. The day will explore how to create change in your organisation, how Senior Leaders can mentor and develop aspiring talent, and whether collaborative leadership teams can innovate more effectively for patient health.

TBC - Leading for Compassionate Care

A half-day masterclass led by Dr Andrew McDowell, of The Performance Coach, that will work with participants to explore at the individual, collective, and network level the relationship between compassion and delivering high quality patient care at a systems level. The aim of this Masterclass is to work with participants to explore the concept of Compassion and support them to integrate this into the way they work both individually and collectively as a network.
