Join us for the next AOFAS Webinar
NEW! Physician Wellness Series
Presented in partnership with the Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society and J. Robert Gladden Orthopaedic Society
Mentoring in a Diverse Workforce
Wednesday, August 21, 2019
8:00 - 9:00 pm CT
Moderator: Christen M. Russo,MD
Faculty: MaCalus V. Hogan, MD; Erica Taylor, MD
Diversity encourages stronger leadership and better all-around performance, yet it is well-known that orthopaedic surgery lacks diversity. To promote a diverse workplace, mentoring must occur from the bottom up – by increasing early exposure
to women and minority students at the high school and college level – and from the top down – by engaging our peers and faculty to set and continuously re-evaluate goals at the leadership level.
In this webinar, faculty from the AOFAS, RJOS, and JRGOS will discuss how orthopaedic surgeons can facilitate diversity in the specialty, and ultimately elevate patient care and engagement in the community.
At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:
Understand the underrepresentation of women and minorities in orthopaedic surgery
Understand the importance of diversity in any workplace
Gain resources to introduce women and minorities to orthopaedic surgery early
Understand the importance of having women and minorities at the leadership level
