The OWL PEARLS webinar series is designed to offer concrete skill-building tips in various topic areas, along with the insights of OWL members. Webinars are kept short – under 30 minutes – to be accessible to more of our busy members. A short summary of each webinar’s “pearls” is compiled following the webinar broadcast and made available to OWL members on the OWL website.
Webinars are free for OWL members and $35 for non-members. Registration is required.

Coaching & Mentoring Program
One of our most popular programs just got better! The Mentoring Program has expanded to include a short-term coaching component. Now in addition to finding (or serving as) a long-term mentor, OWL members have the option of establishing coaching relationships with a situation/issue-specific focus. With the online application process and personal matching service, it's easy to get started.
Starting in 2013, members will receive four issues of our quarterly electronic publication, offering a multimedia mix of career insights, profiles of successful women in ophthalmology, members news and program information.
A monthly newsletter will also be delivered electronically to OWL members and online community subscribers.
Members can access publication archives on the OWL website.
It takes dozens of dedicated volunteers to make OWL work! For OWL members, it's a great way to build relationships and put leadership skills into action. From formal positions on our Advisory Board and Board of Directors to serving on working groups, committees and at individual programs, we have a place for anyone who wants to get more involved.
Here are just a few current opportunities:
