AAWR Virtual Speed Mentoring
The American Association for Women in Radiology (AAWR) Speed Mentoring event for RSNA was very well-received! Conducted virtually in February 2021 using the WONDER platform, the event was sponsored by Bracco Diagnostics, who strongly advocates for women. The success of the event was truly a great example of an amazing team effort that executed a well-organized and informative session.
Over 100 young trainees signed up and attended the event which covered various current and relevant topics by some of the greatest leaders in the field of radiology. Our amazing panel of mentors was made up of AAWR members including past presidents — Dr. Lucy Spalluto and Dr. Elizabeth Kegan Arleo — as well as some prominent members of the ACR Commission for Women and Diversity.
Trainees had a chance to discuss the topics and ask questions at the end of each session. Our mentors were very generous with their time and some even stayed after the session to continue providing guidance and answer more questions. At the end of the session, our mentors shared a list of helpful resources for our trainees.
