Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPhil, Professor and Deputy Chair, Department of Radiation Oncology and Director of the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine at the University of Michigan will raise awareness about the scope of gender inequities in academic medicine and provide education on how to recognize and handle sexual harassment.
This talk and discussion will provide information on the historical evolution of women’s participation in the medical profession and evidence suggesting dysfunction in the pipeline to leadership in academic medicine. Dr. Jagsi will review research that she and others have led to investigate the nature and causes of gender inequities, including unconscious biases, gendered expectations of society, and overt discrimination and harassment. She will describe behavioral science and legal definitions of sexual harassment, share insights from decades of research in occupational psychology, and lead a discussion of targeted interventions to combat harassment and promote gender equity.
