Women make up 51% of the U.S. population, yet they…

  • comprise 17% of Congress,
  • hold 3% of clout positions in telecommunications, entertainment, publishing, and advertising,
  • make up 16% of all writers, directors, producers, cinematographers, and editors.

Not to trivialize these discouraging statistics, but at least the class of 2014 at PennMed is representative: 51% female.  It will be exciting to participate in the shift in the number of women who hold leadership positions in medicine…it simply must happen.
