Smith+Nephew Launches Effort to Foster Diversity in Orthopedics

Smith+Nephew has formed a global Advisory Board—within the framework of its new Orthopaedics for All initiative—to boost diversity in the industry. The board will strive to build equity, break biases, and inspire inclusion for individuals wishing to pursue careers in orthopedic surgery. There is a significant disparity of women in orthopedic surgery compared to men. According to multiple studies, only 15% of all orthopedic residents were women and just 7.4% were practicing orthopedic surgeons in the United States during 2022. Several factors may contribute to this inequity including greater vulnerability to work-family conflict, less supportive references than their male counterparts, and less national research funding compared to men. Smith+Nephew aims to address these long-standing challenges headfirst and help set new standards in patient-centric care.
