TopDoc Radio Logo PSD Neelum Aggarwal

Every voice needs an outlet to be heard and when the information you are sharing is important to the success of your peers and mentees, having an outlet becomes even more critical. Often in the workplace- whether it is a hospital, doctor’s office or business, women and minorities lack the confidence to fill leadership positions- and that confidence needs to be built.

Integrating diversity and inclusion into not only your work, but also your personal life can be a challenge. So to help our listeners overcome this challenge, our host Anthony Figliola sits down with Dr. Neelum Aggarwal, the Chief Diversity Officer at the American Medical Women’s Association to discuss why there is a lack of participation on the part of women and minorities in leadership, how organizations can increase participation as well as how to gain access to the tools needed to improve their roles at all levels of their careers.
