Three UCSF Radiology Faculty Accepted into Leadership Program

We are pleased to announce that Roxanna Juarez, MD, assistant professor in Molecular Imaging & Therapeutics, Yoo Jin Lee, MD, assistant professor in Cardiac & Pulmonary Imaging, and Cynthia Wu, MD, associate professor in Neuroradiology, have been accepted to the Workshop for Values-Based Leadership Development sponsored by the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (HDFCCC). The workshop is designed to empower faculty to become authentic leaders who are self-aware and genuine, mission-driven and focused on results, lead with their hearts and minds, and focus on the long-term. These qualities of leadership foster collegiality, higher levels of trust, greater productivity, and catalyze a more positive working environment.

The HDFCCC's Gender Equity Committee in partnership with Ethos is offering this training to promote and foster a supportive environment that advocates for the equitable advancement of women and gender minority leaders in cancer care, education, and research. Nationally, men hold a vast majority of leadership roles in academic oncology and cancer centers. HDFCCC chose to offer this training to tackle these inequities in career development.

The long-term goal of this program is to improve UCSF's institutional pipeline for diverse leadership. The HDFCCC plans to accomplish this by empowering participants through identification of their true values and engaging them in using these values as a compass bearing to charter a course for a purposeful life and career.

The workshop will take place on November 4th, from 9 AM to 4 PM at the Firehouse at Fort Mason, 2 Marina Boulevard, in San Francisco.
