Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPhil

With the #MeToo movement as a backdrop, the subject of sexual harassment and women in academic medicine will take center stage on Wednesday, Jan. 16, in a presentation by an expert in the field, Reshma Jagsi, MD, DPhil.

Sponsored by the Cedars-Sinai Office of Faculty Development and Diversity, Jagsi's presentation, "#MeToo: Navigating Sexual Harassment, Power Differentials and Gender Inequity in Academic Medicine," will explore the current participation of women in medicine, evidence suggesting dysfunction in the pipeline, causes of gender inequality, the nature of sexual harassment in medicine and interventions.

The event will be held from 7-8 a.m. in Harvey Morse Auditorium.

A professor and deputy chair in the Department of Radiation Oncology and director of the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine at the University of Michigan, Jagsi has extensively studied gender equity and success in academic medicine.

A graduate of Harvard University, Harvard Medical School and the University of Oxford, Jagsi has authored more than 200 articles in peer-reviewed journals, including multiple high-impact works in publications such as the Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine.
