Our vision for the network is to bring together a community of likeminded individuals, both women and men, who work in or have an interest in digital health, and for them to share ideas, create new connections, inspire opportunities and celebrate the successes and outstanding activity of women in the sector.

By delivering regular events (virtual and in-person) with inspiring world-class digital health speakers, we aim to educate the broader community about the opportunities of digital in health and aged care, as well as explore the challenges women may face and how to be advocates for change.
