These Female Healthcare Leaders Will Inspire You to Burn Brightly in 2017 [SlideShare]

Women make up most of the healthcare workforce. But when it comes to leading hospitals and practices, they’re vastly underrepresented.

It’s not that they don’t want to lead. (The data suggests they do.) It’s just not easy to balance a high-wattage career with family and personal commitments.

Because let’s face it. Even in 2017, it tends to be mom who fields calls from day care. Daughter who rushes to the aid of aging parents. Sister who babysits in a family crisis.

If you’re a healthcare provider who’s interested in growing as a leader, check out this SlideShare by Medical Directors Kristin Gershfield, MD, and Sofia Khan, MD. It’s full of candid advice on how to build a meaningful career while maintaining joy and balance.

The following is adapted from a presentation at the CEP America Women in Medicine Forum.

I really like and would like to emphasize the part about how women who are in leadership have found the challenges that were anticipated to not be so bad, in fact. These challenges can be managed. What are other ways people have found, perhaps when hiring help is not an option?

We will press on and on and light the fire from torch to torch, as we have great mentors and support from our colleagues. Let's keep this discussion and mentorship alive. Thank you CEP leadership (from President to CMO, COO, CEO to VP's) for making CWIM a high priority and Tiffany Hacket for pressing on.
