The Female Leadership and Excellence in Pediatric Subspecialties (FLEXPeds) was developed as a community of female pediatric subspecialists from 31 AAP sections who support each other in their work, careers, and lives. The group’s goal is to discuss, design and identify solutions to address gender inequity in pediatric subspecialties.
