The Society for Women in Radiation Oncology (SWRO) was established as an organization to provide a platform to promote women in the field of radiation oncology. We aim to provide networking and mentoring opportunities for women focusing on career development and the steep transition into leadership roles in our field.
We recognize that many women lack strong female role models in their training or work environment and SWRO was established to fill this gap. SWRO will provide a forum to support trainees and faculty who are working to build connections with established women in radiation oncology through sponsorship at all levels. We are a group of women and men dedicated to championing gender equality in oncology, acknowledging the specific challenges of women, and removing barriers to the advancement of women in professional and academic settings.
