FemInEM is a global phenomenon! It was established in 2015 to connect women across emergency medicine, no matter where they lived. Since then it’s has flourished into an unstoppable and multi-faceted force. FeminEM has a website, serving as a centralised open access resource for a multitude of policies that protect working women, a regular podcast and blog, extremely successful conferences and a fantastic, never-before-done, speakers bureau, as a practical solution to female underrepresentation at conferences.
Minerva Productions produces screen content which promotes social change. We consult and advise campaigns on their screen strategy, and also create, develop and produce content which has greatest impact and reaches the widest audiences. Our team are experienced in major national campaigns, commercial and free-to-air television, through to corporate niche videos for internal use. Whatever the organisation, or the platform, we incorporate social change into everything we do. As a woman-lead business, we are proud to support NoWEM in drawing together a community that embraces, empowers and celebrates women in Emergency Medicine.
CAMPBELLTOWN AND CAMDEN EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT

Campbelltown Emergency is a thriving department that is meeting the demand of an enormous and growing population in South West Sydney. We are committed to the ideas of best practice and providing for the special needs of the incredibly diverse patient group that attends our department.

We also practise in professional negligence and contractual disputes, and have a network of trusted partners in commercial, property and family law. We believe ventures such as NoWEM are critical to attain sustainable and significant improvements in the unacceptably low levels of women in leadership.
Experien Insurance Services
Experien Insurance Services helps hundreds of female doctors with their life and disability insurance and medical indemnity insurance - as their insurance broker. We were one of the first to note that in Australia, women did not seem to enjoy lower medical indemnity insurance premiums, yet it is known they have a lower risk of claim. So we pushed hard for this and now see that insurers such as Tego and others are now giving discounts to women. Whether its for this, for female specific trauma insurance claims, or for events like this, we are proud to support women in medicine and recognise the important role they play in this sector.
