“When women succeed, they help pave the way for future generations of women and girls to follow in their footsteps.“

Ambassador Kennedy welcomed Federal Minister Johannes Rauch as guest of honor to her residence for a breakfast with the W-HIT – Women in Health IT Initiative. Together with speakers Sebastian Mörth, Barbara Sladek, Karim Taga, Raffaela Zillner, both Minister Rauch and Ambassador Kennedy emphasized the importance of elevating and promoting women decision-makers in digital health.

“It won‘t happen overnight, but we come a little closer with every successful female health-tech entrepreneur, every company that puts a policy into place to ensure that qualified women are promoted into leadership positions, and every decision to require full inclusion of women in a clinical trial.“
