Women in pharmacy: let the funds begin

The Pharmacy Guild’s Queensland Branch has been selected as a recipient of the Queensland government’s Advancing Women in Business initiative.

For the Guild branch, the initiative aims to support female pharmacists, interns, pharmacy students and pharmacy staff with education and resources to enable more women to start and grow their own businesses and attain positions of leadership.

As part of the initiative, the Guild will conduct four face-to-face education and networking sessions throughout regional and metropolitan areas of the state.

Queensland Guild Branch Committee member Amanda Seeto says the sessions will offer expert advice on the steps needed to buy a pharmacy, and provide networking and mentoring opportunities, with successful women in community pharmacy being showcased.

“Industry expert Felicity Crimston of Pitcher Pharmacy will deliver the education component and Queensland Guild Branch Committee members Cate Whalan, Lucy Walker, Fiona Watson and myself will outline our own journeys into pharmacy ownership and leadership,” Ms Seeto said.

“These events are a fantastic opportunity to meet with like-minded women to further enhance your own network.”

The sessions will be held on March 25 in Townsville, April 1 in Toowoomba, April 8 in Brisbane and April 15 on the Gold Coast.
