WiHMS Webinar: Speaking Up for Yourself and Others

WiHMS Webinar: Speaking Up for Yourself and Others

March 18 @ 8:00 am 9:00 am MDT

illustrations of women doing various activities: protesting, mentoring, crocheting, and playing with a child. Untold Stories and Everyday Heroism, Women's Week, March 18-22, 2024

Gender bias can show up in health care in many ways but its prevalence has led to women being misdiagnosed, overmedicated, or dismissed altogether. As additional identities are intersected with gender identity, self-advocacy can become more difficult or impossible. The audience will gain tools to better advocate for themselves as patients as well as how to use that advocacy power with other women, especially those whose agency has been taken away.

To ensure that the “sky is the limit” for all professionals regardless of gender, the Women in Health, Medicine, & Science (WiHMS) endeavors to promote faculty development, mentoring, and advocacy of women faculty in all stages of their careers to ultimately create a climate that fosters the success of all faculty.

Auto-captions will be available. All requests for event access support and other questions or concerns may be directed to

Women’s Week 2024 is sponsored by Hip & Humble. The Week is organized in partnership with various campus and community organizations across the University of Utah and Salt Lake City.
