- Promote women's leadership through the individual's accomplishments;
- Encourage and advocate for the development of academic women leaders;
- Improve the educational and professional environment for sustaining women in academic medicine;
- Enhance the development of women faculty into positions of greater leadership; and/or
- Inspire women to be leaders through their own careers in academic medicine.
