NEW YORK, April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Assembling women executives from across the pharmaceutical and specialty chemicals industries to network, share experiences, trade knowledge, and build a community that advances women, CPhI North America and InformEx proudly announce the Women in Leadership Forum 2017.
On Thursday, May 18, 2017 from 8:00 – 10:00 am ET, the Women in Leadership Forum will feature a panel of accomplished women executives from the pharmaceutical and specialty chemicals markets who will discuss strategies to address the challenges that have resulted in women filling only 17% of the management roles within the top 20 revenue-leading pharmaceutical companies.*

- Christine Dolan, Senior Vice President, Product Development, Catalent
- Dorene Lynch, Commercial Accounts and Global Marketing Lead, Pfizer CentreOne
- Amy Ethier, Scientist, Topical Formulations & Dermatology, BASF

As much as organizations have an obligation to ensure diversity and inclusion in the workplace, women also have a responsibility to identify opportunities, self-promote, and position themselves for senior leadership roles.
With these goals in mind, in addition to the Women in Leadership Forum panelists, Borderless Management Consultant Rosalie Harrison will discuss how to capitalize on diversity as a key business driver, how women can seek leadership positions on their own terms, and how to create an organizational environment that helps women succeed.
"We launched the Women in Leadership Forum at CPhI Worldwide in 2014 and we are excited to bring this success and passion to the North American pharmaceutical and specialty chemicals markets," shares Robyn Duda, CPhI North America and InformEx Portfolio Director. "The Women in Leadership Forums have been great opportunities for female executives to talk about their paths to success, to learn from one another, and to help each other see new opportunities."
