This breakfast will bring together delegates to hear from our celebrated Malaysian guest speaker, Professor Maude Phipps and to have an opportunity to discuss and debate the importance of gender equity for the medical profession and the broader community in general.

We also plan to launch our “Panel Pledge” initiative at the breakfast . . . another element of ANZCA’s work and commitment to and promotion of gender equity. Be ready to get involved, make a difference and join the conversation on twitter #womeninSTEMM

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.
