I entered neurology at a time when less than five percent of neurologists were women.  I knew very quickly to keep my head down, heels high, and stay laser focused.  The truth of the matter was that most days I felt overwhelmed and lonely trying to keep up with the 80-90 hour weeks.  
 
The fashion in our closets, the men we date, and our hairstyles have may have changed over the years. One situation has remained on course — for the majority of us working women in the United States isolation in leadership positions in the workplace remains. The number of women in senior leadership positions remains at 10-14% depending on the industry; a statistic has not shifted in 15 years.

Today, we are standing in the midst of the unprecedented movement about the role of women in the workplace.  Rooted in the critical conversations around the #metoo and #timesup movements, the tide is shifting to help heal and empower women.

I am going to get real; you are not receiving a staged photograph of a perfectly healthy, low-calorie, low-taste “perfect Thanksgiving” meal from my family.  Of course, producing an anti-inflammatory foods filled menu would be “on-brand,” but it ain’t real.
