Women in Leadership Forum | CPhI Worldwide

Empowering Women in Pharma

For the fifth year running, the Women in Leadership Forum will take place on the second day of CPhI Worldwide, on-site at the IFEMA, Feria de Madrid.

While company leaders are creating programs to increase diversity in their organisations from board level to entry level, what does this really mean for women and how can they work with their peers and colleagues to make this happen?

This event provides an opportunity to meet your peers, hear from senior executives on promoting diversity in the workplace, and assess strategies for your own career development.

The 2018 agenda is still in development. Please check back for further updates later in the year. 

Women in Leadership Forum | CPhI Worldwide

Overview of our 2017 event

The focus of last year’s event was creating more of a business discussion about women in leadership roles. It is widely accepted that creating diversity in the workplace goes far beyond having the correct headcount; data suggests that it also provides clear business benefits - including increased financial performance.

With 106 registered attendees, representing upward of 22 countries and more than 50 companies, diversity was not only the focus of the agenda but a tangible result of the gathering. 

Watch the onsite highlights below: 

"A wonderful opportunity to think outside the box, in an industry dominated by men"
- 2016 delegate

"I think women need to be out front, they still need encouragement to present themselves as leaders in the industry as more doors are opening." 
- Diana Trepanier, Global Director, Procurement and Strategic, Catalent

"Superb! An important chance to discuss the challenges faced by women"
- 2016 delegate
