May 9, 2023 — Leaders from RadEqual, an organization that fosters networking and mentorship opportunities for leaders in radiology, informatics, and IT management, and the American Association for Women in Radiology (AAWR) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at the 2023 American College of Radiology’s annual meeting in Washington D.C. The two-year MOU will merge both parties into a formal agreement that will support increased collaboration and promote a shared pursuit of creating educational initiatives for the broader radiology community.

“It is part of the AAWR’s mission and purpose to create networking and mentorship opportunities for leaders in the radiology field,” said Dr. Amy Patel, President, AAWR. “Our new partnership with RadEqual will give us the profound chance to further inspire women within this community, and we’re proud to sponsor future activities that will be the catalyst for amplifying the next-generation of leaders.”

In August 2022, RadEqual launched a webinar series sponsored by Intelerad, and now the AAWR, on overcoming the mid-career stall. Webinar attendees have the opportunity to learn from some of the healthcare industry’s most renowned leaders. The educational series will continue through July this year, with the next session being hosted on May 17 by Dr. Nancy Spector, Senior Vice Dean for Faculty and Professor of Pediatrics at Drexel University College of Medicine, Executive Director of ELAM and ELH, and the Executive Director of the Lynn Yeakel Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership. Dr. Spector will focus on the topics of mentorship, sponsorship and networking strategies for success.

“Since its founding, RadEqual’s partners and supporters have been at the forefront of creating opportunities for and empowering leaders in the healthcare community,” said Dr. Geraldine McGinty, RadEqual co-founder and Professor of Clinical Radiology and Population Health Sciences, Weill Cornell Medicine. “For over four decades, the AAWR has driven

monumental change, and I am proud that today, we can now align our efforts and build a more promising future for leaders in radiology together.”

In November 2016, RadEqual was born when Dr. McGinty, along with other female leaders, noticed that they were often the only women in the room during events. Through networking and open dialogues, women shared similar experiences in the technology sector, where they are often underrepresented in executive leadership roles and corporate board seats. Today, RadEqual’s initiatives are supported by thought leaders in the healthcare industry, and the global RadEqual community, composed of women, men and nonbinary individuals, has grown to hundreds of individuals who are interested in increasing diversity within the various disciplines related to medical imaging. Intelerad is proud to sponsor the organization alongside the AAWR as it continues to grow and partner with other like-minded groups.

“Collaborating with RadEqual has expanded Intelerad’s mission to include supporting the female leaders in radiology who are the future of healthcare,” said Marissa Carlson, Chief Marketing Officer & Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Chair, Intelerad. “The newly solidified partnership between RadEqual and the AAWR signals the importance being placed on connecting women with mentors in their field, and we’re proud to help foster those opportunities.”
