Dear members of Women in Endocrinology,


We are delighted to kick off our quarterly newsletter.  This will help us keep in touch with issues, get feedback from our members, and encourage new participation.  We are actively planning several activities during The Endocrine Society Annual Meeting and hope to see you there. (see below)


We are looking for members who would like to participate in WE Committees.  Please reach out to me or Committee Chairs if you are interested in serving.  Committee participation is a great way to learn leadership skills, network with peers, and give back to women.


We are starting to discuss revising the WE mission, as we now represent more than half of all endocrinologists and our needs have changed from validation to equity in pay, promotion, and work life balance.


I would appreciate your thoughts about how we should be involved in women’s health issues, with the shocking overturn of Roe v Wade, the Alabama Supreme court ruling that embryos should be considered children,, and the appalling recent rise in maternal mortality  


Take a look at American Women in Science (AWIS).  I’ve been extremely impressed by their data based reports about all women in science  As a member ($150/yr) I get weekly useful news briefs.


Lastly, I would like to give a shout out to Peer Mentoring.  We all should now have women colleagues and we can each help each other. 

This newsletter will be posted on our website, and we will create a Forum that you can use to comment and post your own responses and content.





NOMINATING COMMITTEE submitted 13 nominations for Laureate awards by the Jan 20 deadline.  I am very proud of the work this committee did to identify new candidates and submit a large number of packages. We are always looking for new candidates to nominate so please let me know of ANY ideas. 


The PROGRAM COMMITTEE is pleased to announce that our Women in Endocrinology Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday June 1, 2024, from 6:45pm to 10:00pm at the Boston Convention Center.  Our keynote speaker for the meeting, Dr. Ashley Whillans will be providing a presentation entitled, "Scientific Strategies to Reclaim Time & Live a Happier and More Productive Life."
