Black Women in Medicine Conference
November 3, 2021
Venue:Virtual Live Event
Increasing workplace diversity has been positively linked to improved productivity and patient outcomes. Black women make up 2 percent of physicians and 2 percent of academic medical faculty. Even fewer are in senior leadership positions in health care. Retention and promotion of Black women in medicine and health care are lacking due to a variety of reasons such as lack of support and community, micro- and macroaggressions, and lack of consideration or opportunity for promotion or advancement.
The Black Women in Medicine virtual conference will convene leaders in medicine, public health, and policy to celebrate Black women in medicine, discuss strategies for building stronger bonds between Black women and other women in medicine and health, and foster meaningful connections that empower individuals and their communities to realize their professional goals in spite of systemic frameworks that have traditionally served as barriers to achievement.
Join your colleagues to explore how politics, advocacy, and leadership play a role in supporting and empowering physicians, trainees, and medical students of color who contend with embedded structural racism in the workplace and beyond.
