Growth Edge Leadership Podcast

Oct 14, 2019

In 2017 Dr. Caprice Greeberg’s Academic Surgical Congress address about the gender gap in medicine, “Sticky Floors and Glass Ceilings,” went viral. Her address at the 2019 WIM Summit, “Stop Fixing Women,” continued the discussion.

In today’s episode you’ll hear highlights from this year’s talk. It was full of data that should give even the biggest skeptic pause. There is indeed a gap. The discrepancies are both blatant and not so blatant. Sometimes it’s the not-so-blatant biases that cut the deepest.

Dr. Greenberg and I discuss what we -- both men and women, and especially those in leadership -- can do move the needle and why it’s so very important that women build a supportive network.

In today’s episode you’ll learn:

  • About Dr. Greenberg’s viral 2017 address about her WIM 2019 address
  • About the state of gender equality in medicine today
  • Data the demonstrates the gender disparities
  • About the emotional and mental toll subtle gender bias
  • How you can get involved in this issue
