AGA workshops champion women in GI

We hosted nearly 250 women at four regional workshops this fall and brought together 22 regional delegates for a follow-up strategy session.

At AGA, we’re committed to supporting, empowering and amplifying women in GI on the path towards greater gender equity in GI. As a part of our ongoing efforts, we hosted two more Women in GI regional workshops last month.

The West and South workshops held virtually and in Houston, Texas, provided women across the country with opportunities to develop their personal and professional networks, participate in leadership development seminars, receive career mentoring and engage in various wellness practices.

Following the conclusion of the regional workshops, we hosted the AGA Women’s Leadership Collaboration Conference at the AGA national office in Bethesda, Maryland, last weekend.

During the two-day conference, 22 delegates discussed workplace experiences, reported on their region’s workshop and participated in strategy development exercises to further gender equity in GI, which included identifying tactics and ideas for action.

This unique event brought together delegates from each regional workshop, including 2023 Dr. Maria Leo-Lieber scholarship winners Alyssa Parian and Alexandra Livanos, who attended the Northeast workshop. It was a great time of collaboration and connection with the AGA #WomenInGI community!

Thank you to everyone who participated and made the events a success. We look forward to uplifting all women in GI and identifying ways to support the community in the coming year.

AGA thanks Johnson & Johnson Health Care Systems, Inc. for their support of this program.
