The most important quality of the physician as a leader is to discharge duties (practice) with competence, integrity and courage, to the wider benefit of society, with cost-effectiveness, research, medical education and innovation. Physician qualities are humanistic, and practices are accountable to peer and societal expectations. We discuss two studies, by Rogers et al.1 and Francis et al.,2 published in this issue of the Internal Medicine Journal. Using different research methods, each having recognised limitations, the role of worker inequality with gender, ethnicity, professional role and leadership was examined. Both studies confirmed the contemporary existence of worker inequality within the field of nephrology and recommended progress on workforce advocacy and equity actions.
