Women in Pharma 2017

With the world adopting gender diversity and women empowerment as a top priority in their strategic agenda, there is still a major gap in the ratio of women joining and leading the workforce. It is therefore not surprising that even with the capability to excel in every field only 30 percent of the world’s researchers are women.

The trend also trickles down to the Indian pharmaceutical sector where in spite of a number of women leading some of the top pharma companies in India, women only comprise of close to 15% of the total workforce. With the percentage of women joining the pharmaceutical industry increasing, there is a growing optimism about reducing the gender gap in the currently male dominated industry.

CPhI Pharma week in its 10th year as a leading knowledge and networking platform would like to celebrate the women in the Indian Pharma Industry who have been breaking stereotypes to win key positions and contribute to the growth of the third largest producer of drugs. Join us as we raise a (buttered) toast to the inspiring women in pharma in an elite gathering with role models from industry sharing their experiences and challenges to cross the glass ceiling and head some of the best brains in the world.
