OFD Series: We can all be Allies: How to Promote Gender Equity and Diversity in Medicine

Eleanor A. Sharp, MD

 

Despite women compromising more than half of medical school graduates in the United States, promotion of women into the most senior levels of leadership remains challenging. Women in academic medicine face unique barriers in the form of daily microaggressions, increased burden of domestic duties, and ongoing gender discrimination throughout their careers.  There is a need for all people to speak up and advocate for women and support diversity of all kinds in the workforce, in graduate medical education, and our communities. The term "allyship" has been used to describe this behavior. What is allyship? How can I be a good ally? How do I avoid well-intentioned missteps? By utilizing a variety of virtual engagements through wordclouds, video clips, and small group breakout rooms, this workshop will demonstrate how to be an effective ally, practice allyship using case studies, and provide strategies to avoid "good intentions that go wrong" which ultimately result in promoting stereotypes or propagating inequity.
