Prof. Jane Dacre, Director, UCL Medical School, University College London, on winning the award said; “I am delighted to have won this award. Working in a Russell group University, and Medical School can be challenging for young women, particularly clinical academics. To be recognised for this award will help to show those coming through, that, although it is still a tough environment, it is an exciting place to be, and worth the challenge. I would not be here without the support of a fantastic team of colleagues, who have kept me sane along the way.”Prof. Dacre will now go on to contend for the overall 2012 Woman of Achievement Award. The main Woman of Achievement Award prize for 2012 includes a place on the prestigious Accelerated Development Program delivered by The University of Chicago Booth School of Business at its London campus. This prize will be presented on Friday, 23rd November at the 10th Annual Women in the City Celebration Lunch held at Plaisterers’ Hall, London.
Medicine & Healthcare is endorsed by The Medical Women’s Federation. As a category endorser The Federation helps
to; promote the awards, provide a Judging Panel, select the Category Winner,
and presents the Award Certificates.
On presenting the award, Dr Fiona Cornish, President, The Medical Women’s Federation commented; “Professor Jane Dacre is a trailblazer in medical education with her work on women doctors, spotlighting the needs of an increasing proportion of women in the profession. She has led investigations into the impact of gender and ethnicity on the achievements of medical students and doctors. As Director of University College London Medical School, she is responsible for a large medical education budget and the training of 400 newly-qualified doctors each year – and yet still manages to have a fulfilling family life. She is respected for her down-to-earth and collaborative approach and truly is a beacon and role model for women in the medical profession for the 21st century. “
Award judging panel is chaired by Prof Susan Vinnicombe, OBE, Director,
Cranfield International Research Centre for Women Leaders. The principal aim of
the Women in the City Woman of Achievement Award is to highlight and formally
recognise those women who, as well as fulfilling a demanding senior level role,
are actively promoting and encouraging the progress of women in their
organisation and sector.
