Upcoming WinR Events
WinR Mentoring Program - ongoing
In 2021 we reimagined the core mentorship program to include a long-term experience in hopes of fostering stronger and lasting relationships between participants. The ultimate goal was to cultivate and elevate women leaders, and to provide both mentors and mentees with the tools they need to excel in roles inside and outside of medicine. The final event of the program was an in-person Mentorship Breakfast at the annual AAO meeting in November, which allowed the mentor-mentee pairs to share time face-to-face. The mentors were encouraged to have the mentees shadow them for the day, like we have done in years past. In 2022 we held quarterly virtual group sessions on various topics with breakout discussions leading up to the in-person breakfast at AAO.
Applications for the 2023 Mentorship Program are being accepted through March 8, 2024.
WinR Clinical Trials Incubator Webinar Series
All ASRS members are invited to participate in a 5-part webinar series hosted by the Women in Retina (WinR) Section's Clinical Trials Incubator (CTI) - an extension of the ASRS WinR Mentorship Program that aims to increase the participation of women retina specialists as principal investigators (PIs) in clinical trials. The series offers practical information on clinical trial participation.
