    Please join Women in Innovations and the Working Group on Gender of The Netherlands Society of Cardiology for a breakfast meeting during ESC exclusively for women in cardiology. The program will feature prominent women in cardiology, discussing their personal career paths and providing recommendations to those looking to build their own successful careers in cardiology. A panel discussion, including audience Q&A will highlight how to promote women within the field without falling victim to the stereotypes that so often hold us back.
