Summit for Women in Academic Medicine

The Summit for Women in Academic Medicine (WAM) was launched in 2017 with the goal of creating a space for women in the Department of Medicine to share experiences, gain valuable skills, network and advocate for the development of strong female* leaders in Academic Medicine.  Through multiple iterations of the event, faculty and trainees have heard speakers, panels, and participated in workshops on topics of leadership, wellness, intersectionality, conflict management, allyship and communication. 

While we were not able to host a Summit in 2021, we are currently looking for volunteers to assist in the planning committee for 2022. If you are interested in participating, please contact dom.cultureandinclusion@utoronto.ca

Support Women in Academic Medicine

Through generous support of sponsors, registration for the Summit is free of charge. We feel strongly that there should be no barriers to this work and all our faculty should have equal opportunity to participate. However, if you have the means, donations in any amount to the Fund for the Advancement of Women in Academic Medicine are greatly appreciated, and will help ensure that this work continues into the future.
