“WIMIN is divided into multiple subcommittees with specific activities to achieve our mission:
Social media and webinars sub-committee:
- Coordinates the social media accounts of WIMIN to highlight WIMIN events and spotlight the work of women in molecular imaging.
- Organizes WIMIN webinars series
Young scientist sub-committee:
- Organizes events dedicated to support the career development and advancement of women in molecular imaging
- Collates feedback from trainees to cultivate events and recruit senior mentors based on trainee needs
Fireside Chats sub-committee:
- Organizes events for those who identify as women inclusive of racialized people, LGBTQ2+, and disability
- Facilitates discussion on pertinent issues that impact women in molecular imaging in a judgement-free and empowering space
Spotlight Sessions sub-committee:
- Organizes WIMIN spotlight sessions at WMIC
- Curates session topics and speakers each year (e.g., 2021 topic “Sex-Based Considerations for Molecular Imaging”)
WIMIN Academic/Industry sub-committee:
- Organize networking events to connect academic and industry scientists and stimulate further offline discussions
- Host the Industry/Academia “Tour” at WMIC to allow insight into industry-life and learn steps others took to arrive in their current role
WIMIN Awards sub-committee:
- Facilitates multiple WIMIN awards to recognize the professional and scientific accomplishments of women in molecular imaging at multiple career stages including the WIMIN Scholar awards, Outstanding Leadership award , Rising Star award and Mid Career Award”
Visions by WIMIN:
- WIMIN members contribute to this article series published in MiB focusing on topics of diversity, equity, and inclusion”
