Linda L. Lawrence, MD, FACEP: Overcome the Gender Trap: Leadership Lessons for Men and Women

Over the last 10 years, women have accounted for 50% of medical schools graduates, but still lag in leaderships’ positions in society and emergency medicine. It is important for emergency departments to promote a work environment that not only supports but promotes women in the workforce. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has sparked a revolution challenging us to relook at gender differences and societal stereotypes in a new way guiding all of us in how we can help overcome the gender trap. This session will share some of the key points and research Sandberg and others have raised and provide practical advice to help both men and women achieve their personal and professional goals and promote greater gender diversity in emergency medicine.
