Marcela del Carmen, MD Lecture Series for the Advancement of Women and Diverse Faculty:

“Glass Half Broken: Shattering the Barriers That Still Hold Women Back at Work”

Provided by:  MGH Center for Faculty Development & Mass General Brigham

In commemoration of Women in Medicine Month and the Marcela del Carmen, MD, Lecture Series for the Advancement of Women and Diverse Faculty, the Office for Women’s Careers presented the authors of “Glass Half-Broken: Shattering the Barriers That Still Hold Women Back at Work”! The first 100 attendees received a free copy of their book.

Women—especially women of color—continue to be underrepresented in leadership roles, in high-paying occupations, and in positions of power across sectors and industries despite decades-long efforts to close the workplace gender gap. Gender equality is achievable, but we need to make fundamental changes to our organizations and our assumptions to reach it. This webinar unpacked gender inequities in today’s workplace and provided participants with a framework for taking action.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, participants were able to:

  • Understand the factors driving gender gaps at different career stages.
  • Identify structural barriers to women’s career advancement.
  • Understand how individual actors, from managers to male allies, can drive change and apply those key principles to your own role.

Target Audience: This activity is intended for faculty and faculty trainees.
