OUR MISSION
Equal Opportunities Now

Women make up 70% of the healthcare workforce yet represent a paltry percentage of its leadership. Nearly 70% of healthcare organization leaders are men, and only 25% of organizations have gender parity across the entire senior management level. The precipitous drop of women in leadership continues within academic ranking, with women making up 50% of the medical students and residents and just 21% of full professors in academic medicine. The differences are seen not just in promotion, but in pay, even when all factors are accounted for. In fact, women in medicine earn 82 cents to every dollar earned by men. The reasons for these gaps are multi-faceted, and we not only work to bring awareness to disparities but develop multi-faceted strategies to eliminate them. Because every woman deserves an equal opportunity.

OUR STRATEGY
Data transparency and solution-orientation

Opportunity and economic parity are critical to improving gender equity in medicine. Here’s how we aim to close the gap:

  • Creating transparency around the status of promotion and pay for women in medicine.
  • Developing resources and solutions to solve the gender leadership gaps in medicine.
  • Empowering and uplifting women physicians through programmatic offerings.
