A private event for female physicians. In an interview format, a guest speaker shares their experience in medicine and answers questions from the audience. Female physicians have unique needs and struggles, not only in our culture as a whole, but in medicine in particular. Women Rising provides a space for women to just be together and get real about their experiences. It’s a space to find a common sisterhood and to discuss topics unique to being a woman, from motherhood to gender inequality.
