WOMEN IN SCIENCE & MEDICINE
The Office for Women’s Careers (OWC) was created to foster a gender equitable environment to assure that women will be given the same opportunity as men to succeed in research and clinical careers at Mount Sinai. We are committed to aggressively pursuing and developing the innovative capacity of women and men, and we are taking active steps to increase representation of women at all stages of their career.
We aim to decrease barriers to career advancement faced by women by providing a supportive environment conducive to job satisfaction and career advancement. This includes providing flexible and family-friendly policies, extended timeframe for promotion or tenure to accommodate personal obligations relating to significant events such as childbirth, adoption or care of an elderly parent, a part-time track, a parents group, and daycare. Our policies and programs create a work environment where all members of our community can succeed, advance and thrive.
