Michener Celebrates International Women’s Day

International Women Day March 8

To mark International Women’s Day on March 8th, we shine a light on some of the amazing work that Michener’s female alumni are doing for Canadian patients and their families. Naturally, we’re starting with Michener’s founder, Dr. Diana Schatz.

Dr. Schatz passed away in October 2020 and her work set the standard for medical technology education in Canada. She blazed a trail not only for healthcare education nationally and globally, but, as one of the first female directors of a major educational institution, she paved the way for women in leadership roles in Canada.

We would also like to share stories of some of Michener’s female alumni who are doing exceptional things in their field. Of course, this is only a small sample of Michener’s accomplished female alumni. If you know of other amazing women who should be profiled, please let Michener’s Communications team know at communications@michener.ca. We would love to tell their story!
