Women's Network

Back to Communities

The purpose of the Women’s Network is to provide AHLA women members with networking and professional development opportunities, to enhance their skills, increase access to colleagues and AHLA leaders, and strengthen their ties to and involvement in the Association.

Are you interested in joining the Women’s Network? Go to your demographic profile and select ‘Women’s Network’ to become a member of this group. In addition to being a member of the group, you might also want to participate in the online community forum to connect with Women's Network members. 

The Women’s Leadership Council was established in June 2014 and formalized the operation of the Women’s Network. The Council collaborates with various AHLA Committees and Councils and sponsors Brown Bag webinars, hosts networking events, and showcases women leaders in an ongoing interview series in the Association’s magazine.
