Addressing Gender Equity in Academic Medicine

In January 2020, as part of the AAMC’s commitment toward addressing the lack of sufficient diversity, equity, and inclusion, the AAMC Board of Directors endorsed a statement and call to action for leaders in the academic medicine community to address gender inequities at their institutions. The statement identifies four areas to focus action in order to achieve gender equity: the physician and scientific workforce, leadership and compensation, research, and recognition.
