While gender inequity has been shown to be an ongoing issue in the pharmacy profession, it has moved to the forefront due to increasing numbers of women in pharmacy. Two national organizations, American Pharmacists Association (APhA) and American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) convened a joint Gender Equity Task Force to examine this matter among social and administrative sciences pharmacy faculty. The Task Force launched a survey and conducted interviews, as well as held several forums to solicit recommendations. This commentary provides recommendations for pharmacy constituents and stakeholders regarding: training and programming, leadership and mentoring, policy, and expansion. The goal is for organizations and leadership to incorporate recommendations with the goal of closing the gap in gender inequity.
