To do our part in advancing this important issue we would like to highlight two upcoming opportunities to focus on the tremendous impact of women in endocrinology.
Women in Endocrinology Thematic Issue
In March 2019 the Endocrine Society will highlight endocrinology research performed by women with a special online thematic issue of papers, with social media outreach, podcast interviews, and more.
“Female researchers remain a minority...and on average they publish fewer papers than their male counterparts, which can hinder their future career prospects.”—Rachel Bernstein
Being published in Endocrine Society thematic issues provides a great opportunity to authors, as our thematic issues reach a global audience of influential researchers and substantially increase the visibility of your work. Keep and eye out for this Issue.
Women in Endocrinology (WE) Annual Meeting
On March 23, 2019, WE will hold their annual dinner at the Marriott New Orleans Convention Center, Blaine Kern Ballroom. This annual dinner meeting is open to all WE members and interested endocrinologists, and offers a great networking opportunity. Seating is limited, and advanced registration is required.
The keynote speaker this year will be Dr. Lila Nachtigall, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at New York University School of Medicine. The title of the talk is, “Pursuit of a Successful and Meaningful Academic Career: How to Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too.” Recipients of the WE Mentor Award, Agnes Schonbrunn Award for Distinguished Service, Young Investigator Awards, and Australasian Branch of Women in Endocrinology Travel Awards will be recognized.
