Strategies to Create Gender Equity in Leadership in Academic Medicine
Dr. Travis is the Associate Vice President, Women and Minority Faculty Inclusion, and Mattie Allen Fair Professor in Cancer Research in the departments of Experimental Radiation Oncology and Pulmonary Medicine at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. She is an internationally recognized scientist who has made significant contributions to our understanding of the effects of radiation on normal tissues in her 25 years in the field. For the past eight years, she served as Associate Vice President, Women Faculty Programs, where she led efforts to further the academic careers of women physicians and scientists by ensuring they are appointed to high profile committees and leadership positions, by leading institutional policy change to address obstacles that interfere with women’s success, and by providing career guidance to countless women faculty. The office recently expanded under her leadership to include minority faculty, where she will apply similar and new strategies to address their specific career needs.
