Gender Divide in Healthcare Professions

September 27, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm CDT

2nd ANNUAL WOMEN IN SCIENCE AND HEALTHCARE SYMPOSIUM

Formal and informal separation by gender and how it narrows opportunity and creates barriers to interprofessional collaboration

Healthcare is one of the fastest growing segments of U.S. employment and also one of the most gender-segregated. Women comprise more than 75 percent of healthcare workers but are under-represented in many specialties and most leadership roles. This hierarchy was founded largely upon gender separation and traditional roles — a legacy that deeply challenges the goals of interprofessional collaboration. This symposium will illuminate the cost of gender segregation to healthcare quality and then turn to positive strategies for strengthening mixed-gender teams and the care they provide.
