For some time I have wondered why women now comprise about half of all medical graduates, yet our leadership remains so...male (and white). A few years back I had the opportunity to found Academic Women for Equality Now to explore this issue, but the level of conversation I dreamed about never materialized there.
Now we have another opportunity.
Next week New England Journal of Medicine, via its online forum, will feature a discussion on this very issue. The discussants are listed below and, yes, I am part of the group:
