The Leadership, Engagement, and Action in Diversity (LEAD) Program is a six-month mentored pipeline opportunity created by the SGO Committee on Diversity, Inclusion and Health Equity (DIHE). The LEAD program offers Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM) trainees sponsorship, resources, and a network to support their development as future gynecologic oncologists.
This initiative is fully dedicated to formalizing, improving, and strengthening the pipeline of URiM trainees in preparation for a successful match to gynecologic oncology fellowship, with the express goal of diversifying our field.

The Association of American Medical Colleges definition of underrepresented in medicine is:
Underrepresented in medicine means those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.
Applications are now closed.
The program will kick-off in October with 5 virtual Zoom meetings. There will be an in-person capstone session at the SGO Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer.
During this phase of the program, mentors and mentees will be responsible for scheduling one-on-one meetings to achieve other professional development goals.
This program is supported by independent medical education grants from AstraZeneca, Genentech, Genmab, GSK, Immunogen and Seagen.
