Question normal

I trained in the specialty of Cardiology in the 90s, in Spain. Very few were the women who worked as a doctor, and virtually no leadership role was played by women. In my residency in cardiology, staff consisted of 25 cardiologists, and only one was a woman, and took care of pediatric cardiology, clinical and echocardiography as had formed in both specialties. small slights and assumptions, we now call microaggressions and implicit bias were not uncommon, especially in surgical specialties. Today we are in favor of a shared, especially in the healthcare and scientific fields leadership move. It remains a stretch, but based on a great personality and consciousness, this important challenge will be addressed! Perhaps the commission form a shared leadership in scientific society, with women directors, to analyze competencies in the journal, conferences, research, can facilitate closer to the goal?
