This Seminar is co-hosted with the University of Galway Office of the Vice President for Equality, Diversity & Inclusion and the College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences EDI Committee
This seminar will give an introduction to gender equity in health research and will present the results of a scoping review of gender equity in academia, as well as strategies to promote gender equity based on a scoping review of interventions
The importance of sex and gender identity as determinants of health and well-being has long been recognised
Less attention has been given to the complex interplay of global factors involving sex and gender, which hamper scientific careers and diminish contributions to the knowledge base of modern societies.
Evidence suggests that those who self-identify as gender(s) other than men face substantial barriers, preventing them from fully participating in science.
Identifying who can fully participate in science is important to promote fairness and the extent to which people’s rights of inclusion are upheld.
To deliver scientific excellence, quality, integrity and patient care, the extent of gender equity requires further examination.
