Warming the Climate at UCSF: Women Leaders Reflect on Mentorship

Most UCSF faculty report overall satisfaction with the mentoring climate at UCSF. Women and URM faculty also report high satisfaction with mentoring; however, the 2017 Climate Survey found that women and URM faculty perceive disparities in opportunities for leadership positions, professional development, and advancement compared with men. In this interactive session, a diverse panel of women leaders will share their own career challenges and successes, as well as tips, best practices, and resources for career development at UCSF. Come join a lively discussion as the panel reflects on topic such as;

  • How can women (and men) be more effective mentors and sponsors for women?
  •  How to more effectively mentor (and be mentored) across differences?
  • How to identify and successfully seek leadership opportunities.
