Women leaders face distinct challenges as they develop their careers. These include a lack of role models, the absence of formal and informal networks, and career paths that tend to be more complex than those of men. In addition, women receive little training in how to manage their careers, fulfill their potential as professionals, and take on roles that have long been unattainable by women, especially in male-dominated fields such as neuro-interventional surgery. Using a mixture of lectures, case exercises, short videos, worksheets, and interactive discussion, we will introduce strategies for filling that gap.
This program will provide a structure within which participants can reflect on their goals and challenges, share their knowledge and experience with their peers, build their leadership skills, and start thinking about their “leadership brand”—how they want to be perceived within the profession. They will leave equipped with actionable strategies, all grounded in peer-reviewed research and pragmatic, evidence-based thinking, to improve opportunities for themselves and others.
