Shirin Heidari: Nearly 8 years ago, we published the SAGER guidelines, aspiring to drive a change!

“Congratulations, Shirin! You and your colleagues have done truly pioneering and transformative work to advance gender equity and equality in biomedical research! It’s simply about advancing the best science to benefit all.”

Quoting

“Nearly 8 years ago, together with members of the hashtag Gender Policy Committee of European Association of Science Editors (EASE), we published the SAGER guidelines, aspiring to drive a change towards sex and gender equity and equality in research! .

It’s incredibly rewarding to see the widespread adoption of the guidelines and inspired to continue promoting rigorous, inclusive and equitable science. Heartfelt thanks to all the fantastic SAGER Champions for your dedication and support!”
