Advancing the careers of female oncologists to become the leaders of tomorrow
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 female 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
