Improving diversity and inclusion in research and publishing

Presented by

Dr Lan-Lan Smith, Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet Haematology

About this talk

Gender equity is not only a matter of justice and rights, it is crucial for producing the best research and providing the best care to patients. If the fields of science, medicine, and global health are to improve human lives, they must be representative of the societies they serve. The fight for gender equity is everyone’s responsibility: men and women, researchers, clinicians, funders, institutional leaders, and, yes, even medical journals. Join Dr Lan-Lan Smith, Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet Haematology, to learn about: • Why is gender equity important in research • What do statistics say about diversity and inclusion in publishing • What initiatives have been started at The Lancet to bridge the gap
