AWAEM and ADIEM are soliciting proposals for the inaugural ExCITE (Emergency Medicine X: Creating Innovations Towards Equity) event. Faculty, residents and fellows are invited to submit ideas for practical innovations that emergency departments can adopt to support the careers of women in academic EM. Proposals should outline a plan that is achievable within 1 year, with clear and feasible outcome(s). Faculty will present their ideas to three academic ED chairs during a live SAEM session. Chairs will provide feedback and have the option of deciding to invest by implementing the program in their own department over the upcoming year.
