Boston University’s Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, College of Arts and Sciences and College of Engineering are prepared to lead the country in promoting gender equity for women in biomedical science. The positive impact of gender diversity within science, technology, engineering, math and medicine (STEMM) faculty on patient care, research and teaching is well-documented. However, the culture of STEMM perpetuates explicit and implicit biases that impede progress.

We seek innovative scholarly biomedical research or educational projects conducted by faculty in the Chobanian & Avedisian SOM, College of Arts and Sciences and College of Engineering that advance gender equity for women in the biomedical sciences.

Examples include an educational intervention to promote writing equitable letters of recommendation and evaluations; a program to reduce gender-based microaggressions; or an intervention to improve support for caregiving faculty.
