Promoting gender equity in academic stroke research and clinical trial leadership.
The ESO WISE Workshop is aimed at stroke neurologists, physicians and researchers at all career stages. The workshop is being offered in Milan in conjunction with #ESOC2019. You can register for the full conference on the ESOC 2019 website.
Why are there fewer women among clinical trialists and senior academic researchers, and how does this influence our research focus and practice?
One declared aim of WISE is to support and enhance gender equity of leadership in the field of stroke. As part of this mission the first ESO WISE leadership workshop was successfully started arranged in 2018 with around 70 participants.
We look forward to welcoming you the second ESO-WISE leadership workshop on May 21 in Milan. Speakers are male and female opinion leaders from around the world. Join us for an interactive and informative session. Registration is open to anyone on “first-come-first-served” basis via the ESO head office (email@example.com).
