Canadian Women in Medicine (CWIM)
The formation team will be attending the Canadian Women in Medicine Conference, a landmark Canadian event for thousands of women in medicine. The event will be hosted both virtually and in-person in Victoria, British Columbia from June 3rd- 4th.
The Canadian Women in Medicine (CWIM) Organization is a national not-for-profit with a mission to connect and support women physicians in all aspects of their lives. Now entering its fifth year, the CWIM Conference was created to provide additional support to women physicians throughout the year by way of advocacy, mentorship, and social/charitable events. It has grown to be the largest gathering of women physicians in North America, and continues to be dedicated to honouring the life of Dr. Elana Fric, and all other women affected by Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), by raising funds for charities that support women and their children.
formation is one of many sponsors of this year’s event, along with CIBC, L’Oreal Active Cosmetics, Scotiabank Healthcare, Ontario MD, Telus Health Mycare, TD, RBC Healthcare, and more.
The formation exhibitor booth will include all of our formation scrubs, a changeroom, and formation experts who will help you find your form. We will also be hosting a giveaway for all in-person and virtual attendees who will have the chance to win a free set of custom formation scrubs!
The conference will include live onsite workshops & events led by prominent female physicians from all over the country. The workshops will focus on topics such as Equity in Medicine, “Lady” Surgeons Disrupting Gender Bias, and “Not Like Other Women”: Challenging Internalized Sexism to Create Meaningful Change.
There will also be breakfast and lunch provided by CWIM, as well as optional events including morning yoga, mentorship breakfasts, and the favourite annual event to end the conference, bubbles and bye-byes.
Whether you'd like to join us in person in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, or virtually, we are looking forward to seeing you at the fifth annual CWIM Conference!
