"Breaking Through the Glass Ceiling: Networking Best Practices for Women in EM”

A leadership gap has been demonstrated in the field of Emergency Medicine, in which women are less likely than their male counterparts to hold positions or titles of chair, vice chair, professor, or medical director. This study will evaluate recurrent strategies and best practices that successful women in EM are employing to build their network with a goal of providing guidance for future generations of women in EM to decrease the established leadership gap.
