Annual Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) Conference
Evidence shows, that women faculty may be underutilized as leaders nationally within academic medicine. We are committed to advancing women in medicine and science at IUSM, and are pleased to provide this workshop to support women faculty members in their career development.
Held each fall, the IUSM Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) conference provides a collegial and professional environment for faculty, residents and fellows, students, and staff to discuss career advancement, particularly issues of interest to women.
Our overall goal is for every faculty member to be a success story.
By the end of the conference, we hope participants will have:
- Increased knowledge of the context of women in the academy, specifically in medicine and science nationally and locally
- Increased knowledge of the barriers of women’s full participation at leadership levels
- Increased individual leadership and self-management skills to improve the overall advancement of women faculty
- Increased networking opportunities such as round table and panel discussions
Your Map, Your Goals: Getting the Most from Your Professional Network
Research shows that faculty need a mix of mentors, sponsors, and a robust professional network to maximize their careers. Further, a recent survey conducted by the IUSM Women's Advisory Council identified increasing opportunities for networking as a top priority.
Attend this conference to network with colleagues while gaining a better understanding of its importance! This event is open to men and women faculty, post docs, house staff, graduate and medical students, as well as staff.
Presenters include: Susan Butler, CEO of the SSB Institute for the Development of Women Leaders and Monica Heuer, Senior Manager at the Center for Applied Research (CFAR). As in past years, participants will be invited to sign up for individual, 30 minute coaching sessions with senior faculty.
