Summary

The healthcare workforce now represents I out of 7 employees in the US healthcare workforce. Women now comprise most of the healthcare trainees and workforce, but they often hit a glass ceiling. For example, 84% of frontline hospital employees are women, but only 43% are executive, only 11% are CEOs and there is not a single CEO of a Fortune 500 healthcare company. Moreover, while 51% of the medical students are women, only about 16% of the Department Chairs and Deans are women. Clearly, women are facing barriers to achieving their potential and limiting their ability to help solve the issues facing healthcare. As is demonstrated by the readership of Lean In, women are seeking guidance and direction in achieving leadership roles. However, women in healthcare, particularly those in the healthcare professions, want focused advice from women who have walked the walk.

This book would be unique as it will be written by two women who have attained the highest leadership level by different routes, Dr. Gabow via the medical profession and Ms. Marks via the administrative route. This adds breath, robustness and applicability to the book. This is a practical "how to book" that will help women in healthcare to envision their ability to contribute, to aspire to leadership positions in healthcare organizations, health plans, physician groups and to help them achieve that goal. The authors see this as not only as a help to women, but also as a help to healthcare by increasing the leadership talent pool and thus, facilitating the nation’s the ability to address the myriad of problems facing healthcare.
