Mentoring Office Hours

The ASCO Professional Development Committee has organized programming that will be offered to female attendees at the 2017 ASCO Annual Meeting in the Women’s Networking Center. Mentoring Office Hours will provide an opportunity to have a 30-minute one-on-one mentoring conversation with a highly respected female oncologist. Women can sign up with a mentor to make connections in the field, discuss professional goals, or ask career related questions. Discussion topics are decided entirely by the attendee.
