Women in Surgery host two national events every year to support the membership. Events run approximately every 6-9 months and aim to support and enable women in surgery. Our events are open to all but we encourage those interested in WinS and the surrounding issues to join the network.
The Senior Women’s Day is an interactive event for consultants and SAS members which looks to support the challenges faced by those who may have an established surgical career but wish to expand their portfolios. It explores issues pertinent to this group and discusses ways to improve support and opportunities for the wider membership.
The Women in Surgery Conference is our flagship event which brings together individuals from the whole membership and looks at big topics such as leadership and excellence while providing opportunities to network and attend workshops on a variety of topics.
Our 2018 annual conference was a sell-out event, bringing more than 140 women together to learn about finding a work-life balance. We are excited to be planning our 2019 annual conference and will be sharing details soon.
The Women in Surgery team encourage members to organise local events to support current and future women in surgery.
If you are interested in organising a local event please email us to see how we can help support you.
