Health disparities based on race, income, access to care, and complex social and systemic barriers have taken a center stage in light of the recent health, economic and social injustice events. This spotlight has caused biomedical health professionals and the communities they serve to examine root causes of disparities, seek out resources, and demand policy-level change. At times, these issues can feel insurmountable, because of the deeply rooted history of systemic racism and implicit bias in research settings. In this talk, we will explore the history of both gender bias and racial bias in research settings, highlight strategies that are working to address gender bias, and share recommendations for all stakeholders to help dismantle racial bias.
