This webinar will provide an overview of methods for considering equity, diversity and inclusion in systematic reviews in health and social sciences, with examples of good practice. This builds on the Cochrane Handbook chapter on equity and specific populations, as well as ongoing work on promoting diversity and inclusion in trials and in systematic review teams as steps towards an inclusive evidence ecosystem.
