THE HEALTH CAPTAINS CLUB Key Leadership
The Medical Board is multi-professional and international.
For the Medical Board of THE HEALTH CAPTAINS CLUB it is time to End the Manel Tradition. The Medical Board is committed together with our Network- and Alliance-Partners to change the culture and climate of biomedical research and the medical clinical setting to create an inclusive and diverse workforce. It is not enough to give lip service to equality; leaders must demonstrate their commitment through their actions.
Toward that end, we want to send a clear message of concern: it is time to end the tradition in medicine and science of all-male speaking panels, sometimes wryly referred to as “manels.” Too often, women and members of other groups underrepresented in science are conspicuously missing in the marquee speaking slots at scientific meetings and other high-level conferences. If that attention to inclusiveness is not evident in the agenda, medical board members will decline to take part. We challenge other clinical, scientific and industry leaders to do the same.
