The Pitfalls & Imperatives of Evaluating Women’s Leadership | Physician’s Weekly

”But this oversimplification of leadership along the line of gender may do more harm than good, reinforcing widely held notions that women leaders are universally softer, more congenial bosses. It’s ironic for those of us in leadership who identify as women: first we had to “masculinize” our approach. Now, it’s de rigueur to “feminize” it. Further, oversimplifying gender itself as binary is equally problematic, leaving little space for the range of self-identification along the spectrum.”

I am a practicing, board certified hematology/oncology physician in Chicago. I speak on topics ranging from the impact of social media on healthcare, how physicians can utilize social media, how to write Op-eds in the medical world, gender equity and barriers to career advancement, and topics in GI oncology and immunotherapy. My goal is to explain complicated topics in simple terms. I also enjoy writing and you can find some of my writing on this site. I am mother to a strong willed three and a half year old girl and twin baby boys, and a wife to a gastroenterologist. I look forward to connecting with you.
