Rad onc, meet diversity.

This look-back at the gender spread among invited speakers at the 2012-2016 ASTRO annual meetings demonstrates a consistent 3:1 ratio of male to female panelists, impressively more skewed than even the roughly 2:1 ratio of male to female practicing radiation oncologists. Interestingly, multivariate analysis revealed a strong direct correlation between degree of female representation on a panel and request to repeat it the following year. | Rahimy, Int J Radiat oncol Biol Phys 2019
