This year, WINS (Women in Neurosurgery) hosted Dr. Mary Sue Coleman, President of University Michigan who gave an inspiring talk on why diversity matters in college and beyond. She has long been a proponent of this concept, being a driving force in her University taking affirmative action all the way to the Supreme Court. What was most impressive, however, was how she used this theme as a foundation but then carefully and specifically related it to neurosurgery. She also echoed the theme of Dr. Karin Muraszko's essay in Heart of a Lion, Hands of Woman: What Women Neurosurgeons Do in stressing It Matters!!!
