I am progressing gender equality in my role by being an example to those I mentor and supervise as a part of my job. This includes medical, radiology and PhD students.

I am open about telling my truth and sharing my experiences.

I have mentored women in my field and other areas of academia who have had questions about work-life balance during studying and working, from having children and doing exams, to being in new relationships or being married.

Because I have done all of these things myself, I am able to talk first-hand about them and I believe that my honesty and openness are appreciated.

Sharing our experiences and talking about our truth is how we progress gender equality for all.
