We, the 2020 ANZCA ASM Regional Organising Committee, are proud of our commitment to gender equity and diversity in general. We acknowledge the ANZCA Gender Equity Position Statement and have therefore all taken the ‘panel pledge’ as a commitment to gender equity at the 2020 ASM. We also acknowledge the broader benefits of this position beyond our meeting.
We strive for proportional gender representation with our convenors, speakers and facilitators at the 2020 ASM. We are also proud to have the return of the Women in STEMM breakfast after its inaugural launch and success at the 2019 ASM.
That being said, we kindly request you appreciate the inter-session variations in gender balance and keep in mind the significant contribution our individual speakers make to allow us deliver a meeting of the highest standard.
We look forward to seeing you in Perth.
Dr Ed Debenham and the 2020 ASM Regional Organising Committee
