Theresa Rohr-Kirchgraber, MD, FACP, FAMWA has been selected as an Outstanding IUPUI Woman Leaders in the veteran faculty category for the 2015 Women’s History Month Leadership Awards.
Research shows women’s efforts are often undervalued due to implicit assumptions and cultural beliefs about gender roles which leads to women receiving fewer awards for their scholarly work (Goldin & Rouse, 2000; Lincoln, Pincus, Bandows Koster & Leboy, 2012) . The IUPUI Women’s History Month Leadership Awards are purposed to counter this phenomenon and shine a light on the many outstanding contributions women make to our campus and the world.
Dr. Rohr-Kirchgraber will be presented the award along with 5 of her colleagues at the Women’s History Month Leadership Reception on Thursday , March 26, 2015.
