At the 2010 Internal Medicine Meeting, ACP presented ten
Evergreen Awards and two Special Recognition Awards to honor
Chapters that created new programs that strengthened the chapter
and increased member communication and involvement.
The Japan Chapter received the 2010 Evergreen Award for
their Women's Committee. Here is a brief description of
the chapter's effort.
To encourage female physicians in Japan to advance their careers
and actively contribute to society, the Japan Chapter created a
Women's Committee. Upon its inauguration in 2007, the Japan
Chapter's Women's Committee created an email distribution list of
all female members to allow them to communicate directly with each
other. Using this network, the Women's Committee achieved a
"decision-making by both genders" status in all Chapter Committees
that is seldom achieved in other medical societies in Japan. In
2008, the Committee conducted a survey on mutual partnership
between male and female physicians. This survey generated a great
deal of public interest and received attention from several medical
societies and TV programs. The Women's Committee also established
an annual luncheon at the chapter meeting. These luncheons, which
are open to all, have witnessed a steady increase in the number of
attendees each year as well. From these meetings, participants
recognized the importance of networking and sharing opinions. Since
the creation of the Women's Committee, every Japan Chapter
Committee includes at least one female member. The total number of
women members increased from 53 members in April, 2007, to 128
members on October 27, 2009, an increase of over 140%.
