“There’s always this unwritten rule about evaluating a woman’s CV”

Dr. Vineet Arora is a Professor of Medicine at the University of Chicago and a co-author of the Women In Medicine Covid19 Contribution Matrix for your CV. Dr. Arora joins us to discuss the upheaval Covid19 has caused in career advancement across the profession of medicine, particularly for women and minorities. We explore the “Minority Tax” in promotions, how structural racism and sexism drive this disruption, and how critical it is for individuals to capture all of their work in their CV.
