An international platform to share your knowledge, participate and grow your career 

The increasing number of women entering medical school and working in oncology teams has not been met with an increased presence of women in leadership roles. 

Since 2013, our sessions taking place at ESMO Congress and ESMO Asia Congress have showcased findings from our research and given female oncologists the opportunity to discuss career development, meet inspirational women leaders and network with their peer group. Since 2020, we have also offered a series of virtual events and sessions throughout the year.  

The sessions are a valuable means of strengthening our community of fellow oncologists and gain support across gender. 

Upcoming events


The ESMO Women for Oncology (W4O) Forum 2024 will take place on Saturday, 14 September at the ESMO Congress 2024. The forum is a key event for discussing the advancement and empowerment of women in the field of oncology, understanding the challenges they face, and exploring how these challenges can be overcome. 

The ESMO W4O Committee also invites you to stop by the Press and Media Centre during the Congress, where there will be a dedicated space for you to network, work together, and honour the contributions made by women to the field of oncology.

We look forward to seeing you there! In the meantime, get a glimpse of what happened during last year’s Forum:
