Abstract

Gender inequity in academic medicine remains an important issue worldwide, with more female faculty entering academic medicine internationally. Some academic institutions have initiated programs and created policies to promote gender equity, but disparities remain in faculty numbers, promotions rates, research productivity and access to funding and resources. We offer 12 tips for best practices in the broad domains of faculty recruitment, retention and scholarship, promotion and leadership that institutions and individual faculty can adopt to promote gender equity. While the 12 tips form a comprehensive approach, each tip can be implemented individually depending on institutional needs and culture. Each tip includes practical advice for implementation supported by a successful example from the literature.
