The WIA Subcommittees work on specific initiatives identified as high-priority by the Board in the strategic plan.
Awards and Leadership
The subcommittee will identify, encourage, and enable women in applying for and obtaining leadership positions, awards, and professional recognition within and outside of AMIA.
The subcommittee will facilitate activities that educate women about navigating the appointment, promotion and/or tenure process for women.
Networking/Mentoring and Lifecycle
The subcommittee will create new networking and mentoring opportunities for women in AMIA as well as opportunities for women to interact around issues of work/life balance at different life stages and help develop programs that support lifecycle issues at AMIA meetings.
The subcommittee will identify opportunities to expose girls and young women to informatics. The subcommittee will work with other volunteer groups in AMIA with the goal to increase the number of women in AMIA and retain the women in AMIA in the early stages of their career development.
