Leaders in healthcare: Women on Walls at RCSI

Discover the Women on Walls collection at RCSI University of Medicine and Health Sciences online via RCSI’s social media channels throughout National Heritage Week.

From 17-21 August, RCSI will create a virtual exhibition showcasing highlights from the collection, providing a platform to celebrate their contributions and raise the visibility of the role of women in healthcare.

Unveiled in 2019, these portraits recognise the pioneering achievements of eight extraordinary women and enhance the visibility of historical female leaders in healthcare. The portraits are now displayed in the Boardroom of RCSI on St Stephen’s Green in Dublin’s city centre.

The Women on Walls project, in partnership with Accenture, seeks to make female leaders in all fields more visible and aims to create a lasting cultural legacy for Ireland. Read more about the collection at RCSI on women.rcsi.com.

RCSI Library are putting together some exciting games and activities inspired by RCSI’s ‘Women on Walls’ project, to keep all ages entertained. Watch out for our colouring competition and some fun trivia questions on our social media pages over the week!
