Mission

To provide a forum for issues unique to women in radiology, radiation oncology and related professions; to sponsor programs that promote opportunities for women and to facilitate communication among members and other professionals.


Vision

The American Association for Women Radiologists will assist women in radiology, radiation oncology and related professions to achieve a personal professional fulfillment through equal recognition and opportunities; and will ensure that issues unique to women are acknowledged and addressed by all the members of the profession.


Environmental Assessment

Changes in the practice of radiology necessitate that women radiologists, radiation oncologists, and related professionals acquire and refine leadership and other non-interpretative skills; expand networking and mentoring activities; work towards eliminating gender bias; and achieve equality in the work place. The American Association for Women Radiologist is uniquely positioned to offer its members educational programs and networking capabilities that will enhance their personal and professional lives. With decreasing revenues and with the numerous organizations and activities that compete for member's time and money, the American Association for Women Radiologists must focus its resources and its efforts on delivering services that benefit its diverse membership.
