For the sixth year running the Women in Leadership Forum will take place on the second day of CPhI, this year moving to a new off-site location. Situated directly opposite the main entrance to the Frankfurt Messe on Hamburger Allee, this year’s forum will take place at the Frankfurt Marriott hotel for an afternoon session, closing with a cocktail reception and networking.

This year’s discussions will focus on how we build a ‘future-fit’ workplace, reviewing the challenges with current dynamics and asking how to create an environment where everybody can achieve their full potential.

All Welcome! Don’t let the name deter you! Men are always welcome to attend the Women in Leadership Forum, in fact, we encourage it! To change the status quo, more men need to understand the issues faced by female peers and actively stand-up and speak-up for them. Take the first step toward becoming an important ally to your female colleagues and help build the foundations for the future workplace.

Why Attend?
• Meet your peers away from the show floor- the 2018 edition was attended by senior representatives from Pfizer, Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, Merck, ISPE, Catalent, Sanofi and more.
• Hear from inspirational speakers on strategies for building and improving diversity in pharma, and takeaway solutions for kick-starting change in your own organisation.
• Network with like-minded professionals from across the global pharma network and share your own goals and experiences.
