January 2012 Update

Dear Women Faculty,

I wanted to update you on the progress of the OWISM. Last week we were fortunate to have Molly Carnes discuss unconscious bias in the academic setting. Many of you were able to attend one of her programs, which I thought were of great interest. See our Resources section for video of her Diversity Retreat presentation and powerpoint presentation as well. 

We have several exciting events coming up in February and March that I wanted to make you aware of. Please see brochures in our Program and Lectures section. These sessions are open to all SOM Women faculty.                                                     

On Tuesday, February 21, from 12 – 1pm, we will be hosting the first lecture in our 2012 “Work/Life Intersection Series” in the BRB, room G03.   Join us for a screening and discussion of an academy award nominated documentary that chronicles the various stages of a mother’s Alzheimer’s disease and the evolution of a Daughter’s response to the illness. We feel that this session will be of great interest to many of our women faculty. Please RSVP to the and reply if you will be attending.

On Thursday, March 1, from 9 - 10am in the SOM West room, just below The Turner Auditorium, we will be hosting the first of the 2012 “Information and Conversation” Sessions. Please attend as Catherine Morrison, J.D., Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School and an Associate Faculty in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, discusses “Tools For Conflict Resolution”, a topic of critical importance in the advancement of your career.  Again, please reply to the if you plan to attend this session.

I am also attaching several links and I have added several articles to our resource section  for your interest and review. I feel these are all relevant to women faculty in the SOM.  I hope you enjoy looking these over.

NY Times Article "For Women, Parity Is Still a Subtly Steep Climb"

Lastly, I am attaching the 2011 Faculty Salary Report, this is the 2010 data (please see Resources Section). I have previously sent this to all SOM women faculty, and am re-sending to make sure that you have all had a chance to review. The Dean’s office plans to distribute this data as well to the entire faculty. Please take the time to review and look over this critical report it is of great value to all faculty members.

Thank you for your continued support of the OWISM.  I hope to see you at upcoming events.
