As a College built on leading the way, RACMA strives to set an example of quality leadership, management and initiative for the entire Australasian healthcare industry. As such we are proud that more than half of the College’s Board comprises women, the majority of our Jurisdictional Co-ordinators of Training are women, the Jurisdictional Committees each have a strong female presence and our Chief Executive is a woman.
In celebrating International Women’s Day (Sunday 8 March), it is important we highlight and commend the key contributions, achievements and ongoing critical role our female leaders play to ensure the highest standards of healthcare across Australasia.
RACMA’s female membership also continues to grow with 35% representation – up from 33% last year. We have an impressive breadth of senior female leaders and decision makers among our membership base, many of whom are carrying out key influential roles across the Australasian healthcare system, such as Chief Health Officers, Chief Medical Officers, Directors of Medical Service and Executive Directors.
The International Women’s Day 2020 campaign theme is #EachforEqual – an equal world is an enabled world. Let’s continue to lead the way and as RACMA progresses its work in areas such as diversity, we look forward to welcoming more women into RACMA.
Let’s celebrate what we have achieved, reflect on the work yet to do and recognise the unique role RACMA Fellows and members can play in achieving #EachforEqual.
