The Effects of Gender Bias and Stereotypes in Surgical Training

This week, the Journal of the American Medical Association has released a new report on (10.1001/jamasurg.2020.1127).

Eliminating gender stereotypes in medicine (and other male-dominated industries) requires broadscale, top-down changes in culture and values.

In my whitepaper, “Negotiation Skills as a Remedy for Gender Bias in Medicine”, I argue that these systemic cultural changes will be assisted by arming female doctors with skills to combat gender-based discrimination.

I argue that learning consensus-building negotiation skills could equip female doctors to receive more acknowledgement in the workplace, to negotiate better salaries and working conditions and neutralise the impact of bullying and hostility.

Send me a message if you are interested in receiving a copy of my whitepaper and do get in touch if you are interested in learning more about my training and coaching programs in Sustainable Negotiation.
