Amy Oliver speaks publicly on collaborative and authentic leadership and value-based strategy in healthcare offering a mix of practical advice and inspiration. Her personal experiences launching a firm, running a corporate healthcare portfolio, and attending grad school while raising three young kids has fostered her passion for supporting the advancement of women’s full and equal participation in healthcare, leadership, and business.
From the 1960s to 1980s women in Canada were continuing to fight for rights to their reproductive health, equal pay for equal work, and the right to get a professional education. The progress and rights of women have been built on the shoulders of many women who fought for equality before us. Now, nearly two hundred years after the suffragettes began their movement, Amy Oliver continues to educate and empower others to join the movement towards gender equity and the elimination of harmful barriers and stereotypes that hold women back at societal, organizational, and individual levels.
Amy Oliver weaves in personal (yet all too common stories) through her motivating and inspiring delivery. Amy Oliver holds an MBA with a dual concentration in Organizational Leadership and Health Administration. She is a licensed pharmacist, a Certified Leadership Coach, and a globally certified Project Management Professional. She also holds certificates in Emotional Intelligence and Advanced Strategic Management and Leadership. Amy Oliver has won multiple health sector and leadership awards and most recently has been selected as a member of the prestigious 2020 Governor General Canadian Leadership Conference.
Women make up nearly 80% of the healthcare workforce in Canada, yet are underrepresented in top healthcare leadership positions. Engage with us and explore the gendered aspects, practices, and organizational culture factors that support or inhibit gender equity at all levels of healthcare.
