Delegate: Pascale H. Lane
For her Vision 2020 State Initiative, Lane is raising awareness about the lack of women in academic leadership roles. Lane plans to develop a web site with clear visuals to demonstrate the lag of women in academic medicine so the general public will be more aware of these issues. She will also develop a scoring system to grade each medical school on its female-friendliness. As women make up half of each medical school class, institutions should desire a better score that they can use to attract top (women) students.
Eventually, Lane would like to expand this project to other academic areas in which women are under-represented. However, she will start with academic medicine as this is a field is she familiar with and has sufficient data to drive it.
