Internationell symposium om kvinnliga ortopeder 2021-08-28

Några av vara styrelsemedlemmar var med i planeringsgruppen för första internationella symposium om kvinnliga ortopeder 2021-08-28.

Välkommen att vara med!

Women in Orthopaedics Worldwide (WOW) is a collaboration of over 40 national women in orthopaedics societies and female orthopaedic surgeons from countries who are yet to establish a representative society. WOW was set up to advance gender diversity, equity and inclusion in orthopaedics and is led by Camila De Mattos (Sweden/Brazil, President, Brazilian Orthopaedic Women’s Society, AMOB), Dawn Laporte (USA, Past President, Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society) and Jennifer Green (Australia, Vice President, International Orthopaedic Diversity Alliance).

The first WOW Symposium is in partnership with the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery (AAOS) and will be held on Saturday, August 28, 2021, at 8.00 -9.30 AM CST (UTC/GMT -5). The theme of the symposium is “Women in Orthopaedics Worldwide – The past, present, and future”. The global female pioneers in orthopaedics shall be celebrated and we shall share data on women in orthopaedics from over 60 nations.  The symposium will focus on mentorship and intersectionality and offer an unprecedented  global perspective on women in orthopedics.

We hope you will join us for this free virtual event by registering at the following link (no AAOS membership required). The symposium shall be recorded for those who cannot attend live.
