@smartlikemum 1- All male panels #manels are unacceptable now. Many resources & support for this. #PLOSCompBio’s “Ten Simple Rules to Achieve Conference Speaker Gender Balance” should help: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P… @RACSurgeons @NeelaJan @csl888 @DrRachelleENT @drnikkistamp @TimesUpHC @ranzcog

@DrKatrin_Rabiei @ManelWatchUS @_WomenSpeakers_ @LoggheMD @JusticeInMed @WomenSurgeons Ideas – multifaceted approach:
1. Need to Increase awareness; call it out each time. Use #manel alerts – i.e. let Twitter friends know of #manels and they can tweet about each one. Allies can work together. @DrSinhaEsq @JulieSilverMD #ILookLikeASurgeon #genderequity #inclusion /1
@DrKatrin_Rabiei @ManelWatchUS @_WomenSpeakers_ @LoggheMD @JusticeInMed @WomenSurgeons @DrSinhaEsq @JulieSilverMD 2. Are there women in Neurosurg groups? Women surgeons group in Sweden? Create @swedish_s manel #genderequity subgroup? #WomenInNeurosurgery #ILookLikeASurgeon
3. First panel okay with one woman (not ideal, but to help make change); clarify must be > 1woman on panels in future /2

Starting with trainees: women are discouraged from surgery, receive less OR autonomy, and more often receive reference letters of minimal assurance

Strategy #1: use standardized reference letters focused on effort not appearance. If writing narrative letters, follow these tips

Kicking off #WalkBikePlaces with an infrastructure tour on @BlueBikesNOLA. Several under way now; I'm on the one that looks at public art, placemaking. #bikeNOLA
First stop: Jackson Square, National Historic Site, named for Andrew J. Led battle that saved NOLA in 1812 but owned enslaved people. Should his statue come down? #WalkBikePlaces
Beautiful murals! Families of Plessy and Ferguson reconciled with art in celebration. Studio BE right across the street--big studio space in covered warehouse. @BlueBikesNOLA station right here at park.
