Who We Are

As women with years of experience as senior leaders in academic medicine and science, we’re committed to advancing gender equity and supporting diverse women’s leadership.


The Challenge

When ~40% of your leaders are women, it catalyzes change at the level of organizational culture that supports gender equity. In most places, though, we’re far from this goal.
