Women in Leadership and Management in Animal Health (WILMAH) was founded to meet the needs of the increasing number of women who work in the animal health field. WILMAH members unite to provide professional resources, development, opportunities and advocacy.
WILMAH began several years ago from discussions involving a few key female leaders sharing personal leadership journeys. It was from these open and honest discussions that the idea and need for an industry-wide organization began to develop.
The name, WILMAH, was born along with a vision to ignite a culture of empowering current and future female leadership. WILMAH took shape during a project planning meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana in September 2016 where attendees discussed the landscape, inspiration, values, priorities and future trajectory for the organization. Those participants and advisory board members resolved that WILMAH will function through a dynamic lens of trust, intention, engagement and innovation.
