WIT - CDTRP Event, featuring: Teneille Gofton, Jennifer Chandler, Linda Powell, Bartira Roza, and Claire Williment
In conjunction with our 8th Annual Scientific meeting, CDTRP is pleased to have partnered with Women in Transplantation (WIT), an initiative of The Transplantation Society to host a special event on December 7, 2021.
WIT programming and events have covered many critical issues over the last decade, including a focus on gender in careers in transplantation. This will be the first WIT event related to the careers of women specifically involved in donation. Hosted by Dr. Lori West and moderated by Dr. Vanessa Silva e Silva, a series of short presentations by invited speakers will highlight their career trajectories (e.g., how they became interested in the field, how donation fits into their larger view of their work and essential issues that they think are important.)
his virtual event has included an overview of the Women in Transplantation initiative and several short presentations from women in donation (personal stories about experiences, challenges, opportunities), followed by open discussion and Q&A.
