Description: For more than two decades, over half of physicians and trainees in neurology have been women. Yet women still remain underrepresented in the top leadership positions in academic medical centers and large private practices. The number of women in top leadership positions has remained largely unchanged since the early 2000s. In a recent study published online in the Journal of American Medical Association Internal Medicine and referenced in the AAN's Neurology Today, it was noted that women neurologists in academics make $44,000 less than their male counterparts. The ongoing challenges of women achieving equity in pay and opportunities is a leadership issue. To help develop and support women who have the capacity and desire to lead in academic or private sectors and in the field of neurology, the AAN is offering this course focusing on identifying and building women's capacity to lead in both environments. This program is supported in part by Allergan, Inc.
Completion Message: Participants will be able to develop and support women who have the capacity and desire to lead at higher levels in their institution or practice and in the field of neurology; through involvement of women Academy Fellows, provide role models for women; encourage women to embrace their own leadership capability; equip women to express their leadership voice and be heard (regardless of audience) on a variety of topics in their workplaces.
