IWD 2021 | Promoting Equity for Women in Academic Medicine: An Evidence-Based Approach

March 8, 2021

Join us in welcoming our keynote speaker: Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPhil of the Univeristy of Michigan. Dr. Jagsi will speak to us on promoting equity in academic medicine. As a scholar whose research has long focused on understanding the mechanisms leading to inequity in the medical profession, Dr. Jagsi will begin by providing an overview of the patterns of women's participation in the profession of medicine.  She will then describe studies led by her team and others that have investigated the drivers of women's persistent under-representation among the leaders of the medical profession, even in an era when half of all medical students are female.  These include myriad complex challenges, including gendered expectations, unconscious bias, and overt discrimination and harassment.  She will conclude by discussing innovative interventions that have been implemented to begin the process of cultural transformation in medicine.
