11th AIO International Congress focusing on the Gender Shift in DentistryPublished by firstname.lastname@example.org on 2020, December 16 - 15:35
*postponed: new date: 2022
After a much anticipated wait due to the global pandemic crisis, the website of the AIO Italian Dental Association’s 11th International Congress “FOCUS ON THE GENDER SHIFT IN DENTISTRY: A NEW PERSPECTIVE OR A FUTURE CHALLENGE?” is officially open www.congressaio.it
An ambitious project exploring one of the most important changes within the profession today: the gender shift in dentistry. In Europe, one in every two professors in dental schools are women and in many countries around the world, women now make up the majority of the total number of dental students. Women have also increased their presence in leadership roles earning recognition in the top ranks of dental organizations and associations. For first time in the 717 year history of the Italian university La Sapienza in Rome, a woman dentist, Antonella Polimeni, has taken on the role of chancellor. Women are making enormous strides both inside and outside of dentistry, impacting the profession as never before. An exceptional congress providing equal parity between male and female speakers, aimed at exploring if there actually exists a difference in perspectives, visions and challenges between men and women in dentistry as well as examining how the trend in gender shift could impact the future of the profession. The official language of the congress will be English.
