Increasingly, we know that women are underrepresented in academia and healthcare settings. The 2021 Women’s Symposium will be a venue where we can bring together women and their allies to consider how we might close the gap over time.
This will represent the first of these events, which we are hoping will evolve into an ongoing annual conference over time.
All faculty members who identify as women and allies of women within the Faculty of Health Sciences (and beyond) are invited to join us.
Each session will have a mix of external speakers and FHS leaders interested in exploring key topics around how we might increase the number of women in healthcare leadership positions in both academia and clinical work.
Overall Learning Objectives
-List key issues facing women in academia, leadership, healthcare, and society;
-Add new skills to your basic toolkit for approaching key barriers that women face in academia, leadership, health care, and society;
-Create connections between women and allies across McMaster Faculty of Health Sciences and beyond.
