Women in Pharma community

Just last month, ISPE’s Malaysia Affiliate proudly launched their Women in Pharma initiative in celebration of the Affiliate’s 10th anniversary, welcoming a large group of attendees meeting face-to-face in almost two years.

“Members of the ISPE Malaysia Affiliate started crowding in as early as 8am and the excitement was felt almost instantly. It has been a long two years since we all last met each other in a physical venue, for many of which it was the first time meeting face-to-face,” recounted Mei Ping Lee. “It felt great to be able to socialize and interact in person again, just like the good old days.”
