Fresh Gender Parity Guidelines

A striking gender disparity in global health leadership took center stage at Stanford University’s 2017 Women Leaders in Global Health Conference, uniting over 400 leaders from 68 countries.

Women “represent most of the health workforce worldwide yet remain the minority in global health leadership,” write Michele Barry and colleagues; closing the gender gap means more than inclusivity, but better outcomes.

Women represent 31% of health ministers; only 1 woman is CEO of a Fortune 500 healthcare company.

The confab’s Call to Action, now open for feedback, urges institutions to support work-life integration, nix the pay gap, and track disparities with data.
