Facebook Live Q&A: Women in STEMM Leadership Roles
August 5, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
The NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health hosts a Facebook Live Q&A that will explore the topic of leadership among women in STEMM careers. Issues to be discussed include the role of institutions and mentors in helping to ensure women in STEMM are provided the tools and support needed to excel in leadership roles, especially if they work in a predominantly male environment or lab. The discussion might also include sex as a biological variable in relation to health disparities, the fact that women and people of color are often not included proportionately in biomedical research and clinical trials (specifically at the disease-specific level), and the lower quality of care some African Americans receive from their doctors and in hospitals. More information and details to come.
