by Amy S. Gottlieb
  • Key point 1
    Women physicians in the US earn 25% less than their male counterparts.
  • Key point 2
    Evidence shows that women suffer penalties when negotiating for resources and pay; pay transparency is one way to mitigate gender bias.
  • Key point 3
    Organisations should rethink compensation and recruitment through an equity lens that considers the contributions of women and the biases affecting them; critically, they should also monitor the outcomes of all those processes.
