ALiEM Annual Report 2016: A year of growth and expansion

annual report 2016Each year we’ve generated this report we’ve been flabbergasted by how much our team continues to grow and develop. This year is no different. January is the time that the ALiEM team tends to take a step back and reflect about where we have been and where we are hoping to go!

2016 has been an incredible year. The breadth and depth of our team’s work has increased, and we have seen the launch of many new innovations and projects. Under the leadership of Dr. Michelle Lin, the ALiEM team has grown to become an international organization with over 80 volunteers all helping to not only write for the blog (such as the new IDEA series), but also to create new projects like our Faculty Incubator (affectionately known as the “Facubator”), the Fellowship Incubator (“Fincubator”), and the Wellness Think Tank.

ALiEM BookClub | Lean In: Women, Work, and The Will to Lead

Lean In“We still have a problem” Sheryl Sandberg alarms us in her influential 2010 TED Talk, Why we have too few women leaders. “Women are not making it to the top of any profession anywhere in the world.” While women are getting more college degrees and graduate degrees, and more women are entering the workforce than ever before, when it comes to leadership positions, women do not come close to matching their male counterparts. “The blunt truth is that men still run the world.”

But now Chernobyl is with us every day. No matter what happens, everyone says: Chernobyl. pg 116
