Although we continue to grow in absolute numbers, women in medicine still have challenges that require introspection, planning, education and action. As a grass roots movement, Women in Medicine at Columbia achieved visibility and validity in the residency program and with hospital leadership in a very short period of time, while successfully employing all of those change strategies. My multiple roles in the organization include Division Chief, Service Chief, hands-on clinician, educator and mentor and I try to leverage each of these positions to promote opportunities for advocacy for women in all venues of the healthcare system. Working together we are now positioned to more fully embrace and help women achieve fulfillment at Columbia, champion causes of note and extend our reach to our sisters both in our academic community and beyond. It is such a vital group with complementary talents, boundless energy and commitment. I am so honored to be a part of WIM@C; strong women, working for the greater good.
