March is Women’s History Month, and EBAA is honoring and celebrating the accomplishments and value of women throughout our association, eye banking, and the entire corneal transplantation community.
Right now is a significant time for women at EBAA:
- This Board cycle is the first time in which the EBAA Board of Directors is majority female. The current EBAA Chair, Jennifer Li, MD; Immediate Past Chair, Noel Mick; Speaker of the House, Shannon Schweitzer, CEBT; and Secretary/Treasurer, Elizabeth Fout are all women.
- 65% of EBAA committee chairs are women.
- 48% of EBAA-Member eye bank Executive Directors are female.
- The EBAA staff, with the exception of President & CEO, Kevin Corcoran, is female.
