Statement on inclusive language

RANZCOG

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

Updated
21 November 2022

RANZCOG aims to provide an inclusive and welcoming space to all who access our College and specialist services.

Acknowledging the need for inclusive language for gender diversity, we are actively looking at how the College can best achieve this.

In the interim, our documents will continue existing use of the term “woman” with the intention this includes all people requiring gynaecological and obstetric care.
