How to join an HBA Affinity Group

Affinity groups are self-forming communities of HBA members who connect through a common interest, focus or need. There are a number of current affinity groups within our membership, including:

  •  Entrepreneurship
  • Fit to Lead
  • iLead (formerly Women in Healthcare IT)
  • Career Transformations (formerly Women in Transition)
  • Tomorrow's Executives
  • Women of Color
  • Women in Healthcare Give Back
  • Women in Science
  • Commercial (in development)

All affinity groups are found in the HBA Community. Members can join these communities to stay up to date on affinity group happenings and participate in relevant conversations with other group members.
