I’d love to hear your thoughts on how to bring nursing to the table in such a physician-heavy field. I feel like it’s my credentials as a nurse rather than an MD that hold me back from leadership positions rather than being female.
Cat Martinez
I would like to know if you can share your thoughts about how important health professions degrees (MD, Nursing, etc.) and PhDs are for pursuing a career in global health.
Raquel Alencastro Veiga Domingues Carneiro
How can I as a medical student learn more about global health, develop skills and bring ideas in terms of global health to change my own community?
Lindsey Breier
Would it be possible to set up a slack group for women in global health, as a way to further connect the 250+ women on this chat today?
Deborah Chan
Upvote for this question from Keri!!
Kait Atkins
great idea Lindsey
Cecily Cook
@Lindsey Breier - Slack is a great idea!!

Angie Woodbury
I love that idea too ^^
Raquel Alencastro Veiga Domingues Carneiro
@Lindsey Breier - Very nice idea thank you!
Hopkins CGH

yes @Laura! I tend to tell myself I don't have what it takes to be a leader, though I know I'm a competent clinician. advice/guidance about confidence would be very welcomed
Keren Herrán
Thank you Dr. Mancuso for sharing your insight and experience with us today. To everyone in this chat, I am a rising senior at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and I study global health. Ultimately, I aspire to enroll in a public health doctoral program that will equip me with the added training and credentials necessary to work in international settings in order to design, monitor, and evaluate interventions that mitigate public health issues in Latin America and the Caribbean. I am currently exploring DrPH and PhD options, if anyone would like to connect with me or provide advice my email is heke1@umbc.edu
Barbara Esgalhado
If you do have expertise and a decent work history, how to you move from the domestic to the global in women's health?
Manka Banda
Thank you for this presentation Dr. Mancuso. You spoke about how you engage with networks not explicitly related to health (like APEC, WTC Board). I really appreciated that advice because I think it's essential for innovation and just understanding the system within which global health programs and policies work. How do you decide which of these "other" networks to get involved in and do you have any advice on how to get involved in these new networks?
Sara Bennett
In our group we talked about:-
Yuka Manabe
Many young women faculty are busy with work-life balance so having ways to connect women who may have time would be helpful.
Bhakti Hansoti
We talked about - supporting mentors, changing institutional culture -> decrease mannals, address men and women the same ; lastly meaningful networks for connections
Sheree Schwartz
Some highlights from ours: 1) support and communication from leadership to give space for growth; 2) get on committees to help bring the change we desire (including search committees); 3) emphasizing within programs and mentorship the importance of networking and relationship building rather than just scientific leadership; 4) helping build relationships with organizations outside of public health and/or academia
Sara Bennett
1.need for more space for women in global health to network and reflect on their experiences 2. strengthening networking opportunities on campus 3. work with the organization Women in Global Health to leverage their resources and perhaps develop a local chapter 4. Mentorship - trying to formalize this recognizing constraints on peoples time
Bhakti Hansoti
Also - inequity in promotion pathways - staff scientists compared to tenure track professionals
Victoria Chou
Our group was great and provided great feedback about the benefits of institutionalizing mentorship structures which would facilitate transparency, how a program like that could be organized (and maybe with a manual or guiding principles to inform), and how these efforts should be recognized and rewarded for the longstanding value.
Chioma Ginikanwa
Global Health Mentorship provides a free #global, group-based #mentorshipprogram, which connects #students & #youngprofessionals with #globalhealth experts.Applications are open for the 2020 cohort: https://t.co/m8EKvd4Tg6
Becky Genberg
We discussed: 1) lack of discussion of women in leadership roles in many countries; 2) opportunities for networking and what you learn through networking vs. educational opportunities; 3) more practice in exercises in how to identify our core values; 4) working in teams and learning from others outside of academia even when in degree programs; 5) bridging disciplines and how to fuse networks and finding mentors across fields; 6) thinking about leadership as a characteristic vs. a position; 7) finding ways to mentor even if pressed for time or engaged in educational program; 8) slack!
