Programs and Fundraising Efforts
The Women in Pharma community hosts activities and sessions at many ISPE International Events. Members of the group will also be selling buttons at ISPE events. Those who donate $10 or more ($5 or more for students) will receive a Women in Pharma button. Every dollar from the button sales will be contributed to a scholarship fund supporting future opportunities for women in the industry.
ISPE Affiliates and Chapters have started to support the Women in Pharma initiative by providing local programming and raising funds through the button program. A full toolkit has been developed to guide Affiliates and Chapters in hosting their own Women in Pharma events. This toolkit is available on the Affiliate and Chapter Resources page (login required).

Affiliates and Chapters who wish to participate in the Women in Pharma® initiative should review the Women in Pharma Policies for Affiliates and Chapters. These policies were established in order to ensure consistency in the program while providing support for Women in Pharma at the International and local levels.
