DR. HENRI MICHAEL VON BLANQUET
MD, MAHM, PRESIDENT MEDICINALE.BERLIN
Toward that end, we want to send a clear message of concern: it is time to end the tradition in medicine and science of all-male speaking panels, sometimes wryly referred to as “manels.” Too often, women and members of other groups underrepresented in science are conspicuously missing in the marquee speaking slots at scientific meetings and other high-level conferences. If that attention to inclusiveness is not evident in the agenda, medical board members will decline to take part. We challenge other clinical, scientific and industry leaders to do the same. Based on knowledge about Neuroleadership and the Dunbar-Numbers 150 – 50 – 15 – 5 in context with the Social Brain Hypothesis the Medical Board is composed of 15 Members. TOGETHER FIRST. LEADERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABLE HEALTH.IN EUROPE AND BEYOND. IT IS ABOUT US ALL.
