Words from the Wise: Female EMS leaders share their perspectives

 

 
 
 

Mannie Garza | From the March 2008 Issue | Friday, July 25, 2008


We recently surveyed a cross-section of women nationwide who have had effective leadership roles in EMS. We asked about their careers, their struggles and successes, their frustrations, and their hopes. We also asked them to offer advice for other women who aspire to leadership roles, and recommendations for how organizations and the EMS community can recruit and foster new female leaders.

The 13 women who responded to our survey had way more to say than would fit into the March JEMS issue -- so we've posted their full comments and extended biographies here (JEMS.com exclusive content is highlighted in yellow). Read on. Then, heed their words and lead on! As you'll learn from these women, EMS sorely needs more good leaders -- of both genders.
