#GAReads | About time: gender equity in global health starts in the C-suite
Last fall, I spoke on a panel at the inaugural Women Leaders in Global Health conference. Held at Stanford University, this conference convened to address an uncomfortable contradiction. On one hand, women’s health is the center of much of the work of global health, and women make up the majority of the global health workforce. On the other hand, leadership positions at global health organizations are overwhelmingly filled by men; and too often, the work we do fails to take the impact of gender inequality into account.
