Why is this workshop only for women?

Evidence shows that women tend to underestimate their leadership abilities and are hesitant to apply for leadership roles.  We know that women are most likely to benefit from leadership workshops when registration is limited to women.  In addition, in order to be successful, courses must specifically address the internal and external barriers to leadership promotion that are unique to women.  We are planning for future versions of this workshop to be open to everyone.  In the meantime, we would be happy to help you plan a leadership event, share our learnings and connect you with our speakers.



Feedback on last year's conference:

"Such an awesome event and so good to see the enthusiasm.  Really feel that there is a need for this and to build a community of support"

"I left the workshop on such a high.  There is a long road to go but just knowing that women across the country have similar experiences helps make the journey easier.  The afternoon was so empowering and so bucket filling!"

"This was an excellent conference and it was great to join this community of women radiologists.  There were so many excellent tops and so much good advice, Particularly enjoyed how freely these women shared in their experiences".

"I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the truly wonderful experience that the Women's conference has been. You filled a hole that many women radiologists in Canada needed. It became obvious during the conference that there is a huge need for women radiologists to get together to discuss similar issues, bond over work environments, and feel solidarity that wasn't felt before. This conference brought that to the attendees, and many of us expressed our gratitude. To struggle with workplace issues and feel you are alone is isolating and demotivating, and your conference provided the means for us to work with each other on shared goals and strengthen our roles as a group, and as individuals. I hope this conference continues, and that we can move forward on specific objectives and accomplish even more."
