In CAA National's commitment to empowering and supporting female chiropractors as they face unique challenges as practitioners, CAA launched the National Women in Chiropractic (WIC) program at the October 2015 CAA Annual Conference.
To support the WIC program, CAA developed a WIC Committee in December 2015. This committee is chaired by Dr Bettina Tornatora who previously chaired the Victorian WIC program. The Victorian WIC Program which began three years ago, is led by a group of women and provides support, leadership, mentoring and empowerment to female practitioners.
"We graduate up to 50% females from our courses and yet so few are in active practice, or leadership, or even participating in the profession. This is an untapped resource that needs to be nurtured and supported and a WIC support group is one way of doing this", said National WIC Committee Chair Dr Bettina Tornatora.
