    GWIMS Webinar: Power Reimagined - Advancing Women into Emerging Leadership Positions

    This webinar, sponsored by the AAMC Group on Medicine and Science (GWIMS) Subcommittee on Equity in Power and Leadership, defines the shifting centers of power in academic medicine through a power-mapping exercise. Presenters compared and contrast emerging with traditional leadership roles, discussed the attributes and skills necessary to attain such roles, identified systemic barriers that impede women who strive for these roles, and discussed institutional and individual efforts necessary to overcome these barriers, including the part that mentorship and sponsorship play.
