Abstract

Despite increasing parity in the infectious disease (ID) workforce, gender inequity persists in our clinical specialty. Inadequate accommodations for young parents at national conferences like Infectious Disease Week (IDWeek) contribute to these inequities by disproportionately excluding young women from career advancement opportunities. We propose the Childcare Options, Accommodations, Responsible Resources, Inclusion of Parents in Decision-making, Network Creation, and Data-driven Guidelines (CARING) framework to improve equitable access to major academic conferences.
