Forming one’s professional identity is more difficult if the profession she is entering is not diverse and/or includes few role models and mentors with similar backgrounds (Hadden, 2019). Furthermore, gaps in expectations – from patients, peers, trainees, and supervisors – can make day-to-day experiences more challenging due to micro-aggressions, intended and unconscious bias, and systemic structures that fail to account for the diversity in the modern healthcare and scientific workforce. On the other hand, success in academic leadership and academic advancement can be enhanced by developing self-awareness and retaining authenticity. Furthermore, role-modeling these skills for others, can positively impact the work and training environment and accelerate cultural change that promotes diversity and innovation (Lachance, 2015).
