ESMO Women for Oncology is a dynamic network of women oncology professionals, united by common challenges and common objectives: pursue a successful scientific professional career and be placed to be part of the leaders of tomorrow, by sharing experiences, collaborating on new projects and exchanging ideas.

In 2013, thanks to the intuition and vision of Martine Piccart (ESMO President 2012-2013), ESMO started looking into the under representation of female oncologists in leadership positions, which led to the Women for Oncology initiative.

Today, ESMO aims to support women oncologists looking to achieve leadership positions by:

  • Highlighting female leaders considered as models of excellence
  • Acting as a platform to connect and endorse relevant initiatives
  • Acknowledging women oncologists who became leaders in the field
