New gender equity survey toolkit

29 April 2024

Conduct your own version of the ANZCA gender survey with our new toolkit.

In 2022, ANZCA performed its inaugural gender equity survey and asked the question - “Does gender matter in a career in anaesthesia?”. The results of this survey showed that despite increasing numbers of female anaesthetists, gender inequity remains an issue affecting anaesthetics across Australia and New Zealand.
In conducting the 2022 survey only 1200 ANZCA fellows could be invited to participate in the survey due to ANZCA Clinical Trials Network (CTN) guidelines. These participants were randomly selected from the ANZCA database, and the GESC received feedback during the survey period that many people wished they had been selected to take part.

Developed by ANZCA's Gender Equity Sub-Committee (GESC), the Gender equity survey toolkit contains six documents to assist you in performing a local gender equity survey:

On completion of the gender equity survey toolkit participants of the ANZCA and FPM CPD program can claim the ‘Practice evaluation–measuring outcomes: Practice audit’ activity.

The GESC is happy to provide support to anyone wishing to administer this survey, and should you be willing to share the outcome of your local survey, we'd love to hear about your experience at [email protected].
