Description


An Evolution of Empowerment: Voices of Women in Medicine and Their Allies is a powerful anthology in which Dr. Shikha Jain, a distinguished board-certified hematology and oncology physician, and Dr. Avital O'Glasser, an esteemed hospitalist and expert in perioperative medicine, bring together a collection of captivating pieces from the Women in Medicine Summit(R) blog (www.wimedicine.org/blog) created by Dr. O'Glasser. Founded by Dr. Jain, the Women in Medicine Summit(R) is an empowering 501(c)3 nonprofit platform that promotes the professional growth and development of women in the medical field.


An Evolution of Empowerment urges readers from all backgrounds to recognize the pressing need for change and growth in addressing healthcare gender inequities. Studies consistently demonstrate that a diverse workforce improves healthcare outcomes, yet we still struggle to bridge the gender gap within the medical field. Despite the availability of data, finding practical solutions to close this gap remains an ongoing challenge. The collective dialogue surrounding gender disparities in medicine has gained momentum, and it is no longer taboo to share personal stories or advocate for change. This anthology explores concepts that continue to perpetuate inequities in medicine such as the leaky pipeline, structural misogyny, gaslighting, bullying, sexism, and racism. A call to action and a source of inspiration, An Evolution of Empowerment is a must-read for anyone interested in the fields of medicine and science, gender equity, and social justice-including women, male allies, and gender non-binary friends and colleagues.
