Women in Medicine & Science (WIMS) at JCESOM is in alliance with the Group on Women in Medicine and Science (GWIMS) in medical schools across the country, through its Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) affiliation. https://www.aamc.org/members/gwims/
Mission: Our mission is focused on advancing the careers of women faculty, residents, and students in the fields of medicine and science, by providing tools and opportunities to succeed in academic medicine.
Purpose: Promote policies, practices, and programs that advance women’s participation and success by:
Women Executive Council
The Women Executive Council (WEC) shall function in an advisory capacity to the Office of Faculty Affairs. The council shall guide in program planning and supporting activities related to personal and professional growth of our women faculty, students, and residents at JCESOM. The executive council will meet will meet four (4) times a year on a quarterly schedule.
The goal of the mentoring circle is to provide a longitudinal mentoring experience that ensures every woman faculty, resident, graduate, and medical student, are linked with WIMS Resources, such as rapidly integrated into in the JCESOM community. The mentoring circle program will be an enriching and invaluable experience that allows you to stay connected with new and established woman leaders and professionals. We are currently seeking participants (as a Mentor or a Mentee) for WIMS Mentoring Circle Program, 2019-2020.
Journey to Success:
Professional development activity in which participants learn through understanding the career journeys of successful women. Each featured guest is a woman who has made a great impact in her leadership position, bringing success not only to herself, but to others. In a relaxed conversational format with a facilitator, she will talk about her journey to success and the significant milestones in her personal and professional life.
The program simultaneously celebrates the success of the guest speakers while allowing the attendees to learn from their journey. WIMS will host approximately four sessions per year.

Annual WIMS Leadership Forum: Inspire, Engage, Learn and Lead – May 16th 17th
Career success depends on skills not covered in training, clinical and scientific excellence do not guarantee career satisfaction, and women continue to face extra challenges in career-building. Combining many kinds of small group exercises interspersed with brief plenary presentations, this Forum offers numerous opportunities for gaining insights into what it means to keep growing in the face of constant new challenges and constraints, for practicing necessary but seldom addressed skills, and for building relationships across silos and hierarchies
