C47 - Gender Issues in Leadership

Event Time: Sunday April 23, 2017 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Topic(s): Leadership, Leadership University
Director(s): Barbara Hoese , Lyell Jones MD, FAAN, Bert Vargas MD, FAAN, Maisha Robinson MD, MS
Description: While women make up half of the labor force—and over 50% of neurologists are women— they are still underrepresented in senior leadership roles in both private practice and academe. Women neurologists are still paid less than their male counterparts. Women represent approximately 17% of leadership positions in healthcare, and the number hasn't changed in the past 15 years. What are the factors that are creating this imbalance? Interactive in nature, this program will offer a fresh look at unintended biases that may impede effective leadership equity through case studies and round table discussions. Finally, it will offer practical ideas for both men and women that can be rapidly implemented in the workplace.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to learn effective leadership strategies displayed by both genders; decode communication styles so differences don't lead to misunderstandings; for men: take away practical tips to use in creating a balanced workplace; for women: develop strategies to recognize and prepare for leadership opportunities; learn tips for mentoring the opposite gender; explore how to diffuse the discomfort of having the gender conversation.
