Arizona Women in Healthcare was founded to provide women in healthcare the networking opportunities and professional development tools and education that, when combined with personal ambition and commitment to personal growth and development, will lead to greater career success and satisfaction.

Our goal is to inspire and motivate individuals to make a meaningful difference by discovering and maximizing their strengths, building new competencies, strengthening their network, and building the confidence needed to continuously strive for greater success.

Our goal is to create an environment that fosters strong business relationships through a network of resources that are aligned around similar goals and objectives for achieving success in the ever changing healthcare market.

Student membership is available to female students interested in careers in healthcare. AZWIHC believes that giving young women just starting their careers opportunities to meet experienced top-level professionals is just as important as the opportunity for those top-level professionals to inspire the future of the industry.

Healthcare offers numerous opportunities for women to work in areas of

  • Direct Care Providers
  • Business Operations
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Revenue Cycle Management
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Information Technology
  • Quality and System Engineering
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Public Relations
  • and Research.

Membership will offer students and other members the opportunity to promote the industry and work collaboratively to keep a strong workforce for the future.

Networking Events


Networking events are very important to AZWIHC and our members as they allow members to nurture their professional networks and define and expand their career goals. Networking events will be held throughout the year and across Arizona to Promote, Recognize, Inspire, Develop and Empower our members.

AZWIHC Connect is our way of bringing women together for networking opportunities to discuss shared topics of interest and to build relationships. We offer both structured educational forums and informal networking events to get you on your way! The power of networking cannot be underestimated. It is critical for building and nurturing your professional network. By exchanging ideas and experiences, women can learn to successfully navigate career transitions, leadership roles, and unexpected challenges that are inherently part of the healthcare environment. Women at all stages of their careers can reach a higher level by helping one another advance and learn. AZWIHC members can choose to engage with one another in several different ways:

  • by attending AZWIHC Connect Events
  • by attending our Annual Summit
  • by following AZWIHC on LinkedIn, Arizona Women in Healthcare
  • by visiting or commenting on our Blog
  • or by utilizing AZWIHC Member Directory, available to AZWIHC members via our web site.
Lean in Circles
AZWIHC has joined Sheryl Sandberg’s national Lean In efforts. Lean in Circles are groups who meet regularly to learn and grow together. Circles are as unique as the individuals who start them, but they all share a common bond: the power of peer support. Women are asking for more and stepping outside their comfort zones, and talking openly about gender issues for the first time. AZWIHC will coordinate Lean in Circles to bring together women in healthcare.
