Our mission statement: The Brody Women Faculty group will provide a forum for all women professionals at BSOM to augment their professional skills and enhance their career development. This will be done through advocacy, mentoring, collaboration, education, and support for the women professionals and the leadership of BSOM. We will partner with both internal and external groups to address professional issues, especially those of interest to women. Through this, we will improve the quality of the work environment at BSOM, especially with respect to equity, family issues and diversity. This will enable BSOM to increase recruitment and retention of women professionals and enhance institutional effectiveness.
