RAISE ECHO

Resources, Advice, Insight, Support and Empowerment (RAISE) for Early-Career Women Faculty ECHO

Women in academic medicine face myriad challenges

RAISE ECHO pictureWhile the representation of women in academic medicine is growing, women faculty early in their careers face unique barriers to success. Inadequate mentorship, discrimination, and imbalanced work-life responsibilities contribute to career dissatisfaction, burnout, and ultimately under-representation of women in senior faculty and leadership roles.

To address these challenges, we launched the RAISE ECHO to connect early-career women faculty with academic leaders and career development experts who will share practical guidance and support, covering topics relevant to professional growth. ECHO offers an interactive model for sharing knowledge, skills, and resources women need to thrive and lead in academia. Each month, we will offer a brief didactic from content experts, a short case presentation illustrating a challenge faced by early-career women faculty, and an interactive discussion with panelists and participants.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Maintenance of Certification II (MOC II) credit available at no cost to participants.
