Serving as the leader or CEO in organisations of all sizes and from all sectors can be a difficult and lonely job. Cancer organisations are no different. Whether a CEO of a national cancer society, Medical Director of a cancer unit, Head of a patient support group, or Secretary General of a professional association, leaders from across the UICC membership face challenges unique to their role.
Leveraging UICC’s platforms, the offer includes a dedicated CEO-stream at the World Cancer Congress, CEO-relevant Virtual Dialogues and online courses, a CEO Award and travel grants for CEOs. Alongside this core offer, CEOs of member organisations have access to other relevant capacity building opportunities through UICC's regional offer or peer-learning support.
