We strive for equality of opportunity and inclusion for members of all genders, ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, abilities and experiences. We are dedicated to increase the participation and visibility of Women in GI. We encourage Women in GI to network and strengthen their voice. Join the community!
The Equality & Diversity Taskforce organises two sessions that tackle issues from a female perspective. Our experts provide valuable scientific information as well as personal insights and invite you to join discussions on hot GI topics.
