This symposium will promote both personal and professional growth for women in surgery. It is designed to promote and foster mentorship as well as a peer network for current and
future women in surgery. It will also provide a forum to discuss contemporary issues and opportunities for women who have chosen or may choose a career in surgery. Participants
will be able to interact with women who are thought leaders in surgery and pioneers in advancing women in surgery. The WIS symposium is a professional and academic event
dedicated to encouraging more women to pursue careers in surgery. The Annual International WIS Career Symposium serves to discuss the issues and challenges confronting women as they seek to advance in a changing but still
male-dominated field, and to share successes and advice for breaking the glass ceiling in surgery. Furthermore, the intention is to highlight the importance of advancing women
toward careers in surgery by providing meaningful avenues for surgical professionals and students to interact, exchange ideas, and formulate effective strategies in advancing this important endeavor.
