Gender Equity: We’re Talking the Talk But It’s Time to Walk the Walk
We have been engaged in unparalleled discussions on gender equity both within the surgical community and our society as a whole. It is time to move beyond discussion to begin the hard work of rectifying the systemic and cultural conditions that have propagated these inequities for so long. This presentation will provide a practical framework for the surgical community as we review the progress that has been made and all that still needs to be done.

At the conclusion of this lecture participants will have gained an understanding of:
  1. The cultural and systemic conditions that have promoted gender inequity in American society and the surgical community in particular
  2. Practical steps that individuals can take to advance gender equity
  3. Barriers and facilitators to achieving gender equity in surgery
