Gender Equity and Diversity at RANZCOG
In November 2018, the RANZCOG Board appointed a Gender Equity and Diversity Working Group (GEDWG), with the objectives of creating policies and enacting processes that would improve gender equity, inclusion and diversity across our College.
As the peak body dedicated to women’s health, it is clear we must ensure that our diverse membership is well supported, represented and heard.
The GEDWG meets three times a year to discuss and lead projects that build upon our commitment to make the organisation and health landscape in Australia and New Zealand one that is safe, accessible and inclusive of all.
Gender Equity and Diversity Report
In 2019 the College released its Gender Equity and Diversity Report, providing guidance and practical steps towards achieving our goals.
