LEAD Program


Leading, Empowering and Disrupting

What is LEAD: The LEAD program is a one-year women’s leadership program, jointly led by SCARD and GE Healthcare, consisting of a cohort of 20 female leaders from Radiology and GEHC. The program targets women who are at least mid-career with aspirations for increased leadership responsibilities and positions within their organizations and beyond. Our goal is to increase the number of women in chair positions within their respective organizations and to build a community of women across Industry and Radiology.
