Disappointed by the lack of progress in the advancement of women and underrepresented minority faculty to senior positions and leadership roles in academic medicine and concerned by the prospect that these valuable faculty resources were being lost, a group of five medical school deans agreed to embark on a multiyear project to change the culture of their medical schools for these underrepresented faculty. This commentary outlines the rationale and motivation for the project and sets the stage for future reports from and wider participation in this initiative.
