The Office of Women in Science and Medicine
Our mission is to foster the academic progress of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine women faculty through education, advocacy, mentoring and networking. In addition to providing opportunities for women to acquire the skills and strategies for professional development, we also work to increase the representation of women in leadership roles. By identifying and addressing barriers to advancement, we promote the importance of diversity, humanism, varied career paths, personal wellness and work-life balance.
Dedicated to the advancement of women faculty, The Office of Women in Science and Medicine serves to network women at all ranks in the 31 Departments of the School of Medicine, and offers educational programs to meet the needs of all women faculty.
