Women in Surgery
The ratio of male to female consultant surgeons in the UK is approximately 8:1 and we are on a mission to change that. Women in Surgery (WinS) is a national initiative dedicated to encouraging, enabling and inspiring women to fulfil their surgical career ambitions.
Register for the WinS network and you can connect with over 6,000 women from all career grades and specialties across the UK to collaborate, network and find support. Together, we are changing the face of surgery.
Save the date to celebrate 30 years
On Friday 10 September 2021 we will be hosting our annual conference, which this year marks 30 years of the Women in Surgery initiative at RCS England. The conference will be a celebration of the network and our continuing mission to improve gender equality and raise the profile of women in surgery. Because of the network’s efforts spanning the last three decades, the number of female consultant surgeons has risen by 10%. Women are now represented in all ten surgical specialties and at all career stages. Be sure to save the date and join us, whether in-person or virtually.
To celebrate 30 years of WinS, our members share how they #ChooseToChallenge barriers and stereotypes in their personal and professional lives.
