Throughout March, C+D will be publishing articles focusing on women in the profession, podcasts with the publication’s new women’s advisory board, and – in keeping with this year’s IWD theme Choose to Challenge – encouraging users of the C+D Community forum to openly discuss key topics affecting women.
In C+D’s dedicated Women in Pharmacy room, likeminded women in the profession will be able to discuss anything and everything – from career tips and tricks to obstacles in the workplace.
C+D editor Beth Kennedy said: “While there are a number of prominent women in pharmacy leadership positions, these roles are overwhelmingly more likely to be held by men.
“This is not to say that male pharmacy leaders do not deserve the powerful positions in which they find themselves or have discriminated in any way against the women they work with to get to the top. Rather, women in the profession need more and better platforms to help empower them to reach the same heights as their male counterparts.”
This is where C+D hopes to contribute and help pave the way for “a more equal future for the pharmacy profession”.
Join the conversation and listen to the podcasts on the C+D Community.
