AGA has long been a leader in prioritizing career advancement for women in GI. As we close out Women in Medicine Month, we must remember to prioritize women physicians by supporting, empowering and amplifying them on their journeys all year round. The following are three opportunities for women physicians and researchers you can share today to help expand their networks, career development, volunteering and growth:
Since 2014, the Women’s Leadership Conference has brought together women from varying work settings to develop and leverage the skills of both early career and accomplished women in GI. This year the event has expanded to four events across the U.S. – Midwest, Northeast, South and West – this fall to build connections and share professional and personal growth strategies. Learn more and join us in Oct. or Nov. (trainees and virtual attendees receive discounted pricing).
Use your skills to promote women’s advancement, women member concerns and women’s health issues when you join the AGA Women’s Committee. Three member positions and one trainee member position are open. As a member, you can build or enhance your leadership skills, advance your career, network and impact our field. Nominate yourself or a colleague by Nov. 1.
AGA Women’s Leadership Collaboration Conference
Select attendees from the Women in GI Regional Workshops will join AGA in Bethesda, MD, on Dec. 2–3, 2022, to share lessons learned from their regions and engage in additional activities to advance vital initiatives to maximize the role of women in the field.
