A Rubric to Center Equity in Obstetrics and Gynecology Research

The Steering Committee for the Obstetrics & Gynecology special edition titled “Racism in Reproductive Health: Lighting a Path to Health Equity” formed a working group to create an equity rubric. The goal was to provide a tool to help researchers systematically center health equity as they conceptualize, design, analyze, interpret, and evaluate research in obstetrics and gynecology. This commentary reviews the rationale, iterative process, and literature guiding the creation of the equity rubric.
