RSNA Webinar – Is There a Gender Penalty for Women Professionals During COVID-19?

Date: June 11, 2020

Time: 12:00PM - 01:00PM

You must be registered to participate!

Depending on subspecialty domain, geographic region, and practice/employment setting, radiologists, radiation oncologists, and imaging scientists have all had their professional and personal lives altered by the COVID-19 pandemic. While substantial gains have been made, women continue to make up a minority of the professional radiology workforce and hold fewer senior and leadership roles relative to their male colleagues and the literature supports that a disproportionate service burden – both professionally and in the home – falls to women. We also know from the literature that burnout disproportionately impacts women in our field, presumably in part due to potential gender imbalances of service demands and sense of value and belonging in the professional arena.

In this 60-minute webinar, we will explore whether the gender gap in professional advancement and productivity may be widened by circumstances surrounding COVID-19, including impacts on clinical service, educational activities, and research, and the compounding stresses of caregiving and related pressures.

Information will be provided during the webinar about how to obtain CME credit.
