Women make up 70% of the global health care workforce but hold only 25% of executive and leadership roles in the industry, according to the World Health Organization. In a field that is seeking diversity in leadership, encouraging and connecting women leaders is one of many strategies that is important in driving necessary change.  

On Oct. 18, TruStar Marketing is honored to sponsor the second full Council Women’s Connect Event to bring together women from Nashville Health Care Council’s (NHCC) member community. This driving event has grown from the success of the previous women in health care networking events sponsored by NHCC’s Leadership Health Care (LHC) initiative.   

Due to the event’s prior success and the importance of women in the industry, NHCC moved to expand the opportunity in 2023 beyond the LHC initiative to the full NHCC membership for the first time. TruStar Marketing was honored to sponsor the first of these expanded events in February 2023.  

TruStar Marketing had previously been sponsoring the LHC event four times a year since 2019. We are uniquely excited to be the presenting sponsor of the expanded event.  

The October event will be a friendly and fun start of the day with coffee and breakfast bites at Baker Donelson, a woman-owned law office in downtown Nashville that is recognized for particular strengths in health care. The event will also focus on self-care with a drawing for a spa gift certificate. 

“The Women in Health Care Connect Event provides a friendly, informal setting to meet women leaders and professionals in health care,” said Paula Milam, president and chief strategist at TruStar Marketing. “It has always been a delight to attend and sponsor because of the incredible and delightful, accomplished women who attend! I hope this premier NHCC event is seen as the best way to start the day ever.”  

The event will be held from 7-8:30 a.m. CT at the following address:  

Baker Donelson
1600 West End Ave.
Suite 2000
Nashville, TN 37203
