The IU National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health is hosting an event to raise awareness and understanding of the pay gap that exists between men and women in medicine and science, “Negotiating the Divide,” from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 18, in Fairbanks Hall, Room 1110.
Women residents, fellows, students, and scientists from throughout the Indianapolis area come together with industry professionals and established physicians and faculty to discuss pay discrepancies, negotiation skills and to encourage female leadership in medicine and science. This year’s keynote speakers are Lori A. Ball, MBA, chief operating officer at BioStorage Technologies, Inc., and Niceta Bradburn, MD, FAAP, program director and executive director of the Regional Neonatology Program at St. Vincent Women's Hospital.
There is no cost to attend and parking is free. Please RSVP (with name, title, address, email and phone number) to 317-948-3315 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is held annually close to “Equal Pay Day," established in 1996 by the National Committee on Pay Equity to symbolize how far into 2013 women must work to earn what men earned in 2012. This year the day is April 19.
