TIME TO STOP 'LIVING WITH IT'
NATALIE CRAMP, WOMEN'S HEALTH CHAIR AT WOMEN IN DATA® & CEO AT PROFUSION
DAME CLARE GERADA, GP AND MEDICAL DIRECTOR OF NHS PRACTITIONER HEALTH
Women live longer than men, but live far fewer years in good health than men do. There is well documented gender inequality in healthcare, both due to lack of education, data and funding for conditions which specifically affect women, and poorer female representation in research for conditions which affect all sexes. This is a reality impacting each and every one of us, it’s time to take control and stop just living with it. This session will explore some of the challenges women face and what we, with your help, as Women in Data® intend to do about it.

Hear from the women who founded Hertility Health.
As scientists, female health was our profession. As women, it became our passion.

DAME STEPHANIE SHIRLEY CH
LET IT GO!
Dame Stephanie’s story has many strands which, woven together by her courage, determination and resilience, have produced a lifetime of exceptional achievements. In recognition of these she was appointed Member of the Order of the Companions of Honour (CH) in 2017, a membership limited to only 65 individuals globally, for her services to the IT industry and philanthropy.
A child refugee who at five years old came to England without her parents, Dame Stephanie went on to found an all-woman software company that pioneered remote working and redefined the expectations and opportunities for working women at that time. It was ultimately valued at almost $3 billion and made 70 of her staff millionaires. Since ‘retiring’ her work has been in philanthropy, with a particular focus on autism and IT.
