Let your voice be heard: take the Women’s Reproductive Survey 

By Keisha Reynolds, MyCG Writer

For the first time in more than 30 years, the Coast Guard is soliciting insight into women's reproductive health for active-duty women. The Coast Guard is supporting the Department of Defense (DoD) in an effort to modernize the Services' understanding of women's reproductive health needs through the Women’s Health Reproductive Survey. 
“The survey is very important,” said Chief Warrant Officer Allyson Conroy, deputy of Organizational Communications and MyCG, and is also a survey respondent who voluntarily shared her thoughts.

“Since our workforce is made of about 17% women, it is essential that we bring to light the reproductive health needs of our Coast Guard women,” she said.

In mid-August, the survey was randomly sent to 125,000 active-duty women across the DoD armed forces, as well as the Coast Guard. If you received the survey, please take a few minutes to respond. You have until 30 November to provide your insight.

“In order to make changes for women at the Coast Guard, we need your input,” said Conroy.
