We are pleased to announce the Inaugural Conference of the Global Ophthalmic Women (GLOW) to be held June 25-26, 2022 at the Sheraton La Caleta Resort & SPA in Tenerife, Spain. GLOW will be a two-day conference designed for optometrists, ophthalmologists, and industry.
The intent of this GLOW event is to empower ophthalmic women of diverse nationalities, cultural backgrounds, and realities through education, leadership and lifestyle strategies. GLOW will bring women together from all over the globe to share their experiences and challenges of being a woman in a professional world.
Women comprise the fastest growing demographic in these professional fields. As stated in an Optometry Times article back in April 7, 2017 and referencing an article published in the AOA Focus: “The shift in our profession’s demographics toward women has been occurring gradually and will continue to grow. In 2014, women made up 38 percent of the profession and 39 percent of AOA members. Now 65 to 75 percent of optometry students are women.” And this was also echoed at a March 2019 article in the AOA Focus titled: “The Future is Women”. Therefore, by providing adequate leadership skills, mentorship, and strategies on how to succeed in the professional setting while maintaining a proper balance between adequate work and life demands, it is important that this growing demographic will be equipped to further succeed.
Given this reality, current Optometric/Ophthalmic Leaders should value and take time to nurture and develop the fastest growing demographic in these fields – this is GLOW’s goal and mission. From an industry perspective, these will be the largest and fastest growing consumer base – so taking the time to support initiatives that will empower them and help them become even more successful, which will in turn benefit the industry.
