GWIMS Toolkit

The GWIMS Toolkit is a series of presentations designed to provide practical guidance on a variety of topics relevant to women faculty in academic medicine. Each presentation provides an overview of the topic, relevant best practices, tips on implementation, and useful references for more information. We encourage you to share these resources with interested colleagues at your organization.

GWIMS Toolkit Volumes and Chapters:

Volume 1: Leveraging Your Career

Chapter 1: Managing through Teamwork for Maximum Performance (Judy Weber) 

Chapter 2: Crafting a Fundable Grant (Emina Huang)

Volume 2: Institutional Strategies for Advancing Women in Medicine
