RCOG ambitions for the O&G profession

The College’s work to achieve racial equity within obstetrics and gynaecology.

It is unacceptable that racial and ethnic inequities persist in the careers and day-to-day working lives of obstetrics and gynaecology professionals, as well as in women’s health outcomes and experiences of care across their life course. The College is progressing a plan of action to address this. Find out more here.

There is a significant intersection between racial equity and environmental sustainability, given that the climate and ecological crisis is tightly wound with inequality, oppression and health inequities. Driving forward our College's response to climate change and the need for improved environmental sustainability in the O&G profession is a key priority.  You can read about our ambitions in this area here.
