Northwestern Women in Medicine: Thriving in the Virtual World

Women physicians face unique challenges and obstacles throughout their professional careers. These challenges may affect leadership development and opportunities for women in medicine resulting in a gender gap in the governance of academic medical centers.  Women physicians currently lack a conference or forum for discussing strategies to achieve equality in the workplace, wellness and work life balance, mentorship and career development. The 3rd annual Northwestern Women in Medicine conference will help to identify the obstacles that contribute to gender inequity and will start the discourse to bridging it by hosting a virtual lecture series monthly.

We will shed light on gender disparities and then share experiences and tools to overcome the barriers that exist in medicine for female physicians so as to empower and create a network to lean upon.
