Call for Applications: The Green Journal is accepting applications for the position of Associate Editor, Gynecology. Deadline for applications: September 30, 2017.
Call for Personal Stories: Obstetrics & Gynecology is planning to publish a special section on biases encountered by ob-gyns in the workplace. Examples of biases that may be considered include, but are not limited to: race, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, and ableism. Additional forms of biases may be suggested for consideration. The Editors are seeking personal stories from our readers who have faced or are currently facing bias in their roles as practicing physicians. There are no guidelines for these stories. Your story, if chosen, will be excerpted by the Editors and published in an article that describes the personal experiences of ob-gyns. All stories will remain anonymous. You will be notified by the Editors if your piece is selected for publication. Share your story at email@example.com.
