Abstract

The specialty of radiation oncology's gender diversity is lagging other medical specialties. The lack of gender diversity in radiation oncology has been demonstrated at all stages of career, from medical schools to department chairs. Multiple articles have demonstrated literature-based benefits of inclusion of a diverse group of female colleagues. This editorial is intended to note areas of progress and highlight resources available to support gender equity in the field of radiation oncology.
