The Women in Intensive Care Network (WIN) was formed to address the gender imbalance in Australasian Intensive Care medicine through advocacy, research and providing networking opportunities for female intensive care doctors. WIN is proudly supported by ANZICS andIntensive Care Network.
Our vision is to improve the representation of women in all facets of intensive care medicine, including clinical, academic and leadership roles. WIN welcomes the important contribution of both women and men to this change process. In particular, the Intensivist-Parent Support Network was formed to support and advocate for all doctors who are combining a career in intensive care medicine with parenting.
Core activities of WIN:
- Networking events (read a rundown of our first event here)
- Research into the barriers to women’s participation in intensive care medicine
- Intensivist-Parent Support Network
WIN is currently networking a storm in Victoria and NSW. For more information see our website here

The next IPSN meetup is this Saturday (the 5th of December)! Check out their page here for more details
