The Women’s Health Leadership TRUST celebrated the Minnesota women and companies in health care who focus on collaboration to do great together. It has been said that while competition makes us faster, collaboration makes us better. Just two people can create collaboration in health care to improve the world. Partnerships and collaboration are terrific opportunities to shake up the status quo and reframe traditional thinking. These experiences often challenge us, open up our minds and shed light on ideas better than our singular thought.
Collaboration & Partnerships Category: No one discipline can systemically address complex health issues. Building partnerships within an organization or forging collaborative external relationships often takes a common goal. In some cases, radical collaboration is observed where creative tensions fostered by opposing ideas and perspectives work together to find a solution that improves the delivery of health care for everyone.
Founded in 1979, the Women’s Health Leadership TRUST provides networking, leadership development, career advancement and education opportunities for women leaders in health care. Over the past 35 years, the 400-plus member organization has grown into one of the most influential women’s health care organizations in Minnesota.
