San surgeons attend Parliament House for International Womens Week event
Last week, in celebration of International Women’s Week, the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and Women NSW held an event to address the barriers and practices that effect female surgeons. Event speakers and panelists included a number of San surgeons.
RACS have been proactive in increasing the representation of women on their boards and committees. Currently 35% of RACS committees and boards are women, however only 14% of fellows are female.
San surgeons who attended the event included ENT surgeon Associate Professor Payal Mukherjee as RACS Chair, Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr Michelle Atkinson as RACS Deputy Chair, Cardiothoracic Surgeon Dr Emily Granger, Vascular Surgeon Dr Upeksha De Silva, and panelist and Professor Raymond Sacks.
This is just one example of our San surgeons who #choosetochallenge while supporting International Women’s Week.
