@smartlikemum 1- All male panels #manels are unacceptable now.

This is @TChanMD taking over the account this morning. Getting ready to live tweet the talk by Dr Gillian Hawker (@UofTDoMChair) who will be speaking on the important topic of #MindingTheGap in #AcademicMedicine!
Dr. Hawker starts with a great quote: "I'm not here to bash men."
This is VERY true, men are our allies in the fight for equity. - TC

Such a treat to be at @feminemtweets #Revive19 listening to @PEAKMD talk about coaching. Definitely an amazing female physician leader who is experienced and wisdom in this area. Check out this thread if you are interested in finding out more.
Coaching is different from mentorship.
Executive coaching comes from a place that empowers the person being coached - they have the answer. This is different from teaching (giving you more knowledge), mentor (a guide that nudges), and a coach (who helps you actualize things).
Teaching is more about pushing (being directive).

Mentoring is more about feedback, offering guidance.

Coaching provokes reflection, understanding, paraphrasing, summarizing. Pulls you towards the answers inside of you.

It's a spectrum.

#NotAllMen #BoysWillBeBoys Thread

If you had a 6-year-old daughter, would you let a strange 14-year-old boy babysit her? We do all the time with girls. Babysitting is a first job for many a young woman. But boys? 1/21
99 times out of a 100 that boy would likely watch your daughter dutifully (or as dutifully as any 14 y/o would) until you returned. But there's that chance, right? What if this is the boy who does something inappropriate? I'm not taking that chance with my daughter. 2/
This is the sort of message we send young boys, that we send young girls. Not only do we send this message, WE DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to change the underlying behaviour. It's normal. A 14 y/o boy may be weirdly sexual with a girl he babysits. 3/

1/ #medtwitter if you care about #metoostem #meded #equity #burnout please follow along. Gender violence is pervasive in medical training.

bit.ly/2FBkNGG

#sciencetoo #meded #medtwitter #medtoo #timesup #beethical #heforshe #timesup
2/ “…we may hear and intimately know the experiences of gender violence, but we are unable to share. Our voices are trapped and silenced, exacerbated by the hierarchical and apprentice-based training environment.." bit.ly/2FBkNGG
3/ Over 50% of medical students experience sexual harassment from faculty and staff. The people who are entrusted to teach us how to be physicians.

Overdue post: in recognition of male allies. Cuz sometimes when you’re devoted to calling out gender inequities people take that as an anti-male agenda.
When you’re in a male dominated profession, the system tends makes it hard for women. Individual men - many of them - help you overcome the barriers.
A man took me into his NIH lab at NHLBI and wrote a letter that got me into med school.

Another man took me on as a research mentee in a lab at @YaleMed, continues to support & cheer me on, and is a huge #HeforShe

Feeling excited to share #mystory for voices without frontiers initiative, a part of #IWS_Network. I feel proud to be a part of this great group with so many intelligent, dedicated, ambitious and diverse #womeninscience #VoicesIWS
There is a woman behind every successful woman too :)
All that I am and ever hope to be, I owe to my #mother (by #Lincoln); an intelligent, strong independent woman. My parents are the protagonists in my life story. extremely supportive and let me lead my life my way.#parentslove
#knowledge; supreme form of wealth which manifolds when offered to others #momsays. I love volunteering to spread knowledge #VoicesIWS #IWS_Network @LetsTalkScience #STEM #mystory

1/This is an excellent example of WHY @NIH needs to change their gender violence policies. Not only was this researcher found to be responsible by civil legal standards for sexually harassing a post-doc, the uni. found him resp. for creating a hostile environment. #metoostem
2/Literally the DAY the sexual harassment settlement was reached on September 17, 2018 the university publishes a letter lauding this researcher for obtaining a $20 million grant from @NIH: bit.ly/2P97QsW #MeTooSTEM
3/ What happened to this researcher? He has to take a training on sexual harassment and might have a letter put into his HR file. He is still the director of an institute. What happened to the post-doc? She has left the university and her research has not been published.

1/ Content warning: sexual harassment and assault. The @theNASEM released a report on sexual harassment in medicine. Disturbing quotes by #womeinmedicine from the report are in this thread (17). #MeToo #MeTooSTEM #heforshe @womeninmedchat @physcianwomen bit.ly/2JzUunm
2/ Residency. "But, the thing is about residency training is everyone is having human rights violations. So, it’s just like tolerable sexual harassment." (Nontenure-track faculty) #believewomen #MeToo #MeTooSTEM #womeinmedicine #metoophd #metoomed #MedEd #sheforshe #heforshe
3/ Culture. "I still don’t think that the prospect of being sexually assaulted was as bad as watching the next generation of sexual harassers being formed. I think that was the worst part for me." (Nontenure-track faculty) #MeToo #MeTooSTEM #womeinmedicine #MedEd #heforshe

1/This article highlights an urgent need for training faculty and administrators on issues related to gender violence and discrimination in #meded. We have five concerns with the article. #metoo #meded #womeninmedicine #sheforshe #heforshe @caroline_a_king @womeninmedchat
2/ Title IX. This article is missing information about federally mandated reporting processes and protections that legally protect medical students (and all students in the U.S.).
3/Anecdotal beliefs perpetuate harms. A physician expert states “the trainee must amass allies before lodging this complaint…” This is legally incorrect, a single report is enough to trigger Title IX and this reinforces the notion that single reports will not be believed.

This weekend I watched #TheAvengersInfinityWar and it made me think of the fierce & diverse network of real-life heroes coming together to advance the careers of #WomenInMedicine
Theg all have different backgrounds and philosophies and approaches. At times they may even be at odds with one another...
But they all aim to elevate women in medicine. Period.

Here are some of them.

(NB: focusing on folks who have made it their *singular* mission to support women physicians)

This is my commentary on #twitter #movements. Before I go I want to preface this with a statement: I love humans. We're amazing creative & powerful beings. I'm fascinated by human behaviour and the hidden motivations underlying our basic need to belong. 1/
I've observed some movements taking off on Twitter. Some for #MedEd, raising awareness, knowledge sharing, inspiration and sharing failings, wounds & triumphs. Generally they support creative expression in 280 characters. Awesome! 2/
As these movements gain momentum, more people want to join in b/c #belonging. I'm seeing a disturbing trend of sharing experiences of patients/clients to promote how deep & human they are. Some are purely intended, some not. 3/

@des_winter 5. MANELS (all male panels) remain so common in surgery it is almost not worth calling them out. However, if everyone pledged not to participate in another one they would stop tomorrow! #heforshe

@des_winter 6. Innovate to create change
University of Michigan recognized they were not attracting and retaining the best and brightest so decided to take active steps to create an inclusive culture for women. Here is what they are doing. Is it working @jdimick1?

medicine.umich.edu/dept/surgery/n…
@des_winter @jdimick1 There is more, however I will now rest my bee and bonnet and enjoy some Easter chocolate.
Thanks for starting a dialogue on this issue @des_winter. We need to make surgery a more inclusive field for women, and that will only happen if we all work together #heforshe #sheforshe

I have a message for men in medicine, academia and science (a thread) after reading 3 articles about sexual misconduct at conferences and in offices - all must reads:
1. drjengunter.wordpress.com/2017/12/14/i-w…
2. medium.com/@kristianlum/s…
3. docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…
Here is the message: The young women you encounter at these conferences are not there for your entertainment. They are not provided as an escort service. They are not objects. #HeForShe
It turns out (shockingly) that they are there for the same reasons you are: to learn, to teach, to present their research. They are equally, if not more, qualified than you. They have overcome barriers just to get there. #HeForShe
