Hi Physician Leaders,
I'm Dr. Lisa Herbert, Board Certified Family Physician, Best Selling Author, Speaker, and Executive Leadership Coach. I help physicians transition into leadership roles so they can be the respected voice in healthcare.
In my podcast, I challenge women physicians to consider their seats at the table, and in the words of Shirley Chisholm, "If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair." Fifty years ago, Shirley Chisholm became the first African American woman elected to Congress. In 1972, she became the first African American candidate for the presidential nominee of a major party, and the first woman to seek the Democratic nomination. Even though she didn’t win the Democratic nomination for president, Over the course of her 14 years in Congress, Chisholm was able to be a force for change and a champion of legislation that would improve the quality of life for women, children, people of color, and the poor.
This podcast was inspired by the Edward Kennedy Institute A Seat at the Table Project.
I ask you to reflect on the following thoughts as outlined in the project and journal the answers on your worksheet.
Here are 5 thoughts to consider when thinking about your seat at the table.
