The DZHK is committed to promoting female scientists in leadership positions. We see the 3rd session, “The gender gap in cardiovascular research”, as a joint kick-off and would very much appreciate your thoughts and ideas on this topic. You can pick up question cards from the registration desk on site* to answer the questions below. We will use your input (anonymously) in the panel discussion.

  1. What has helped me progress toward a leadership position in cardiovascular research as a woman? (females only)
  2. What concrete suggestions do you have for the DZHK to promote female scientists in leadership positions?
  3. What can we do to support you? (females only)
