Leveling the Playing Field: Promoting Women in Academia

Date: Tuesday, December 13, 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm (EST)
Presenters: Anita Chong | Marina Berenguer, MD | Guadalupe Garcia-Tsao, MD, FAASLD | Kathleen E. Corey, MD, MPH, MMSc | Rotonya Carr
Moderators: Erica Villa, MD | Tatyana Kushner, MD, MSCE

The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the issues facing women who wish to pursue an academic career in Hepatology. The idea behind is that examining the obstacles and the difficulties will help in identifying the possible solutions.

 The webinar will start with the trailer of the very relevant documentary “Picture a Scientist” as an introduction to formal presentations, which will examine the problem of academic disadvantage, both in terms of poor recognition of career progression and authorship. Two lectures will be an exemplification of real careers by a junior and a senior faculty member, and lastly a lecture will be devoted to identify possible resources.

There will then be a 20-minute discussion between panelists and a Q and A session to involve the audience, directed by our moderator.
