New Opportunities to Accelerate Gender Equity
for Women in Medicine

Saturday May 20 | 10:30am - 11:30am

Presented by Dr. Julie Silver

Although there has been great progress in some aspects of gender equity for women in medicine, there are still many sticky floors and thick glass ceilings. The pandemic has created new barriers that have set women back, and there is an urgent need to assess the current status and look for new opportunities to accelerate gender equity. In this forward-thinking presentation, Dr. Julie Silver focuses on new research and opportunities to strategically home in on key equity issues and accelerate progress for women and others who identify with underrepresented groups. Dr. Silver discusses how to identify tipping points and use various bodies of research and best practices from medicine, law, and social sciences to create a culture of inclusion. Dr. Silver also offers tips on how to enhance productivity while simultaneously decreasing time and effort in order to reduce burnout symptoms and improve work/life balance. Participants will be inspired and armed with new knowledge and skills to advance their careers and support others.
