Accelerating Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the Academic Workforce Using a
Data-Driven and Evidenced-Based Approach: Strategies and Science from a
Gender Equity Physician Researcher

Dr. Silver is a researcher and nationally recognized expert on inclusion, diversity and equity. Her work in equity intersects with physician burnout as well as dissemination and implementation science. She has published multiple reports on bibliometrics—educating researchers about both conventional and alternative metrics—aimed at supporting both research dissemination and faculty promotion.

Dr. Silver has published in high-impact journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, British Medical Journal, and multiple JAMA Network journals. Dr. Silver has led numerous high impact national strategic initiatives such as the Be Ethical Campaign and the Need Her Science Campaign. 

Dr. Silver’s own research and clinical work has focused on improving gaps in the delivery of healthcare services, particularly cancer rehabilitation. She is well-known for her ground-breaking work on “impairment-driven cancer rehabilitation” which has been incorporated into the American Cancer Society’s Facts & Figures. 

Dr. Silver was named the Top Innovator in Medicine in 2012 by The Boston Globe, and the same year her start-up company was listed by Bloomberg/Businessweek as one of the most promising social enterprise companies. Her work has been featured in many media outlets including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The London Times and NPR.
