Gender Equity Working Group

The Gender Equity Working Group (GEWG) was established in November 2017 to promote the importance of equal representation of women and men across our fellowship and an increase in women in leadership and management positions. 

 

The college strongly endorses gender equity because of its ethical, social, and economic benefits to our fellows, trainees, specialist international medical graduates (SIMGs), and the broader community. The working group reports its activities and initiatives to the Professional Affairs Executive Committee (PAEC). You can read about some of ANZCA's new gender equity initiatives.
