Healthcare women’s leadership association announces first office in Europe

The Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA) opens its first office in Europe on 9 October, located in Brussels, Belgium. The HBA is a global, non-profit association focused on the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare. The HBA has been growing steadily worldwide, particularly in Europe with roughly 700 members across six countries.
“We’re thrilled that women and companies in Europe increasingly recognize the value HBA provides in developing strong leaders and leadership skills. This has fueled our community’s growth and strengthened the gender parity performance of the companies partnering with us. Migrating from a virtual operating model, to a brick-and-mortar presence will help us deliver even greater value to our individual members and corporate customers,” said Laurie P. Cooke, HBA’s chief executive officer.
Committed to achieving gender parity at all levels of leadership in healthcare and life sciences companies, the HBA facilitates career and business connections and provides effective practices that enable organizations to realize the full potential of their female talent. The HBA accomplishes this through its education, research, advocacy, strong business networks, and recognition for individuals and companies.
The HBA has partnered with the MCI-Group, a global association management and consulting company to create its presence in Europe. MCI will provide operational expertise and resources for local chapters across Europe, enhancing the member and chapter leader experience. “MCI impressed us with their intense customer focus and association management expertise. Our partnership will facilitate the HBA’s growth within Europe and beyond, accelerating our ability to bring the business benefits of gender parity in leadership to our corporate partner companies,” said Liz Coyle, HBA’s executive vice president.
