TIME’S UP Healthcare
We’re here to heal a broken system.
Sexual harassment and gender discrimination have no place in health care. Women make up nearly 80 percent of the health care workforce, but only 20 percent of the decision makers — including hospital leadership, executives, and association presidents — are women. And sexual harassment and gender discrimination run rampant: Researchers estimate that 50 percent of female medical students will experience harassment before they even graduate. That’s unacceptable.
A safe, equitable, and dignified workforce is the only way we can provide high-quality patient care.
