AAMC Leadership Development Seminar for Women Faculty in Medicine and Science
June 15, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - June 17, 2021 @ 4:00 pm EDT
Sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed new challenges and barriers for women faculty in medicine and science, who are trying to achieve promotion and advancement during a time of great disruption and uncertainty. Research shows that scholarly productivity has been vastly reduced as women are balancing personal and professional responsibilities, making it more difficult to prepare for advancement and gain visibility for their work.
The seminar’s curriculum is designed to provide women physicians and scientists, at the assistant and associate professor level, with skills and strategies to help navigate and direct their careers and seek opportunities pursuant to achieving their leadership goals.
You will benefit from a combination of plenary sessions, small group breakouts, a leadership panel, and networking. During the networking session, you’ll have an opportunity to practice presenting your ideas and achievements in a virtual setting with the option to solicit feedback from your peers. Seminar topics include:
– Academic Promotion and Advancement
– Gaining Visibility
– Self-Advocacy and Negotiation
– Other leadership topics central to achieving your professional goals, such as: strategies for supporting well-being and resiliency, allyship, and navigating through change.
