The 2022 Women's History Month and International Women's Day theme is #breakthebias. So, what does that mean in practice? Women's health remains an area with many challenges and stark disparities in health outcomes, especially among women from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. This is especially true in clinical research and treatment. Typically, women with overlapping identities are excluded and initiatives that invest in women are developed from a lens that acknowledges the barriers that exist for women but ignores the privileges that exist for white/cis/het women. As they navigate challenges at the intersection of race and gender, it is impossible for women of color to separate their experiences as a woman from their racial identity. This webinar will explore the business and societal case for breaking the bias in the health ecosystem so that the needle is moved to advance health equity.
