Susan Elliott named in 2018 Canadian Women in Global Health List

Monday, December 3, 2018

Water Institute member and professor in Waterloo's Department of Geography and Environmental Management, Susan Elliott, joins fellow Canadian Women on the 2018 Canadian Women in Global Health (CWIGH) List

Susan ElliottThe CWIGH List, initiated by Jocalyn Clark from The Lancet, and founded in collaboration with Eva Slawecki from the Canadian Society for International Health and Sarah Lawley from the Government of Canada, is inspired by a broader global movement to recognize the achievements and expertise of women in global health. In 2014, Ilona Kickbusch started a Twitter campaign to generate names of leading women working in global health for the #WGH100 list, and following a commentary in The Lancet, resulted in a list of 300 women leaders (#WGH300). In 2016 Roopa Dhatt founded the women in global health movement (#womeningh) to spur gender equity in global health leadership, and many regional chapters and lists have since emerged. Their main goal is to help diversify the production and translation of knowledge and improve the quality, equity, and impact of Canadian science and policy on global health worldwide.
