Programs and Lectures

Information and Conversation Sessions

The OWISM hosts Information and Conversation sessions four times each year. These sessions are informal and open to all SOM women faculty. Topics for these informal sessions have been solicited from faculty members, and have included: work life balance, advancement, feeling valued, childcare, and navigating the SOM system.

All of the sessions have a dedicated facilitator with expertise in the selected topic, and the informal nature of these sessions allows for great interaction between faculty members.

Leadership Program for Women Faculty

The Office of Women in Science and Medicine (OWISM) was created in 2008 to increase representation of women in leadership roles, on high level SOM committees and other departmental and institutional decision making bodies. The Leadership Program for Women Faculty (LPWF) will serve as a vehicle to achieve this mission, by providing female faculty at the Instructor, Assistant and Associate Professor level, important skills necessary for advancement at the JHUSOM.

The OWISM organized its first Leadership Program for Women Faculty in 2009 in collaboration with Talent Management and Organization Development (TMOD) and the Office of Faculty Development.

The goals of this program are to develop JHUSOM women leaders who can contribute to future initiatives throughout the school, and to retain emerging female leaders by providing a prestigious and challenging learning experience. The LPWF will hopefully result in new leadership opportunities and ultimately promotion for the SOM women faculty.

The OWISM has selected its fifth annual Leadership Program for Women Faculty (LPWF). The goal of the LPWF is to develop JHSOM women leaders who can contribute to future initiatives; and to provide a challenging learning experience which can lead to new opportunities. This group of participants has representation from the majority of the Departments in the School of Medicine.

Work Life Intersection Series

The OWISM has teamed up with the Office of Work, Life and Engagement to develop a series of interactive sessions for women faculty to discuss issues and learn about available resources related to work/life intersection. These informal workshops will be facilitated by Meg Stoltzfus, LCPC, Lifespan Services Manager.

Bridging the Gap Program

Speed Mentoring

The OWISM Is initiating a new and exciting speed mentoring program. The purpose of this program is to allow our more junior women faculty, (Mentees -Instructors and Assistants) the opportunity to meet more senior women faculty, (Mentors - Associate and Full Professors) in an interactive forum to discuss various issues and concerns related to their professional careers. There will be 4-5 one hour sessions each year. Each hourly session will have an overarching theme, and during these sessions, mentors will have the opportunity to interact with 4 distinct mentees. Mentors will meet with each of their assigned mentees for 10 minutes and address a specific question raised by the mentee in the content area of the session. If you are interested in becoming a mentor or a mentee, please contact the OWISM@jhmi.edu .
