Happy International Women’s Day to our community! In line with this year’s ‘Embracing Equity’ theme, we caught up with the fabulous Dora Amene.
Dora originally graduated from the University of Hertfordshire where she studied BSc in Pharmaceutical Science and MSc in Pharmacovigilance. Dora was involved in the Pharmaceutical Information and Pharmacovigilance Association (PIPA) committee, where she collaborated with industry professionals from diverse cultures and backgrounds sharing best practices with the wider membership in various companies and cites this project as her biggest career achievement to date.
We also asked Dora what an equitable space looks like for her:
‘I see an equitable space as a place where there is a representation of diverse cultures, race, experience, and seniority in an organization be it within a department, its team members or the management/leadership team being able to collaborate and engage in both complex and non-complex conversations. Diversity, inclusion and equitable spaces in the workplace help create a culture where every employee feels a sense of belonging.’
