March is designated as Women’s History Month every year–a time to champion women’s voices and their long-standing role in positive change in history. This year’s theme celebrates “Women Who Advocate for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion” which calls for the need to eliminate bias and discrimination in our lives for progress in society. In our history, it has been recognized that there is an unequal playing field for women worldwide in striving for justice. We realize that there is a significant role for diversity and inclusion: making sure that each voice is heard and included. 

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion as Driving Forces of Progress

As our social institutions and technology gear toward progress, it is crucial to hear from different perspectives and voices regarding its direction. Women have been in the forefront of reevaluating these long-standing values and have continuously questioned harmful social policies and behaviors. It is evident how women across communities are helping to develop innovative products and programs within our communities, businesses and educational institutions to address different injustices we face. 

The Impact of Women in the Healthcare Industry 

In this article, we highlight how women played a critical role in the healthcare industry, from providing care to their families to leading groundbreaking research and advancements. How did women shape the healthcare industry we know now?

Women in Medicine 

While women have always been a part of the healthcare industry, their presence in medicine has historically been limited. In recent years, however, there has been a significant increase in the number of women entering and excelling in the field of medicine. This has led to a more diverse and inclusive healthcare system, with women bringing unique perspectives and approaches to patient care.

Women in Healthcare

Women make up the majority of the healthcare workforce, with over 77% of healthcare workers being female. This includes nurses, physicians, and other healthcare professionals. Women have been instrumental in providing compassionate and quality care to patients, and their presence in the healthcare industry has helped to bridge the gender gap in healthcare access and treatment. Surprisingly, the wage gap still persists even with the majority of healthcare professionals being women. 

Women in Research 

Women have also played a crucial role in advancing medical research, particularly in the field of women's health. Historically, medical research has been heavily focused on men, leading to a lack of understanding and treatment options for women's health issues. However, women researchers have been instrumental in conducting studies and advocating for more inclusive research practices, leading to a better understanding of women's health and improved treatment options.


At Care Indeed, we honor the women who continuously advocate for our elderly clients and build a significant impact in the care industry. We are proud to say that, as a company, we consider every need of our women employees and offer them resources, flexibility, and an open platform for their voices.
