To inspire culture of change towards equality so that all anaesthesiologists can reach their individual professional goals

The ESA strongly supports gender equality because of its ethical, social, and economic benefits to the boarder community in general, and to anaesthesiologists and its members in particular. This Committee has been established with the purpose of promoting equal individual opportunities in clinical work, teaching, research, leadership and decision-making of European anaesthesiology and intensive care medicine, regardless of sex, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual preference, medical or psychosocial disability, socioeconomic opportunities or political background.

Within this broad mission of inspiring culture of change towards equality so that all anaesthesiologists can reach their individual professional goals, the Committee should primarily raise awareness of gender issues and promote equal opportunities for, and representation of, women and men within European anaesthesiology and intensive care medicine regarding

  • recruitment for graduate and postgraduate training and examination
  • clinical work and responsibility
  • teaching and clinical supervision
  • research, development and scientific supervision
  • formal representation in boards and committees
  • leadership and decision-making.
