The Annual Career Day for Women co-sponsored with The Graduate Division of Biomedical Sciences is an annual full day event dedicated to career development focusing on issues important to female faculty. Mentoring, breaking the glass ceiling, moving into leadership roles, and negotiations were among the themes of recent Career Days. Plenary speakers have included, Deborah Helitzer, Sc.D., Dr. Jo Ivey Boufford, Dr. Sandra Daley, and Dr. Griffin Rodgers. The highly inspirational day also gives faculty an opportunity to network.
Last year's Career Day was held on Wednesday, December 9, 2015 and centered on managing your response to culture change in your organization. Dr. Kevin Grigsby, D.S.W., Senior Director, Member Organizational Development at the Association of American Medical Colleges, began the day with a plenary session dedicated to your role in transformational change and followed up with an afternoon workshop on the “The Imposter Syndrome”. Faculty Women in Medicine and Science were given instrumental tips and techniques to learn practical and tactical information that will unify the clinical, academic, and research enterprises in an academic health center.
