A community that socializes together, stays together.

Mission Statement

To empower and build a community among women trainees, and those who support them, across specialities at Stanford.

GME Women in Medicine Leadership Council (WIM)


GME Women in Medicine Leadership Council (WIM) is a subcomittee of GME Diversity Committee. Our focus is to provide: 

  • Community-Based Events - A community that socializes together, stays together. These events are meant for the residents/fellows and faculty members who are women in medicine, or those who support them, to mentor/be mentored and, to importantly, learn from each other during the journey in medicine. Participants are limited to Stanford or Stanford-affiliated individuals in medicine.
  • Skill-Building Events - We organize workshops throughout the year to bridge the skill gap and to equal the skill field with topics, such as career trajectory, negotiation, unconscious bias, and much more. Let us know if you would like to have workshops on other topics!
  • Resources - Provide resources available to current house staff, such as
    • child care / back up care / lactation rooms
    • how to deal with harassment
    • maternity and paternity leave


  • NOTE: Consistent with its non-discrimination policy, Stanford's programs are open to participants regardless of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, veteran statuss, martial status or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.
