A New Year's Message from Charlotte Jones-Burton, MD, MS

Dear Women of Color in Pharma Members & Friends,

Happy New Year! 2019 is here and I am so excited about the direction of our organization. The engagement of our members is high and the energy of those who are interacting with us is palpable! As we say goodbye to 2018, let’s pause and remember what a brilliant year it was for WOCIP. One year ago, my New Year’s message ended with a call to “Blow your own mind in 2018!” and I would say as an organization, that is exactly what we did! What we accomplished in the past 12 months was unimaginable and should be celebrated and reflected upon as we enter 2019.

We accomplished the following in 2018:

  • Expanded our organization’s leadership by adding two new roles to our Board of Directors, launching four chapters in NJ, NY, Philadelphia and Chicagoland and forming a conference planning committee
  • Continued our outreach and engagement of Latina women
  • Expanded our social media footprint which helped us to grow our informal network to over 1000 followers and gain the attention of potential sponsors, partners and journalists
  • Increased our sponsorship dollars by approximately 100%
  • Sold out our Second Annual Conference with a 30% increase in attendees over the Inaugural Conference
  • Tripled our membership
  • Landed a Forbes article titled “How These Founders are Redefining the Pharmaceutical Industry for Women of Color”

We are grateful that you were with us in 2018 and 2019 is already poised to be an amazing year! Thank You for being on this journey with us. Continue to be “all-in” by being an active member, joining us if you’re not already a member, sharing our organization with other women of color in pharma in your network and by volunteering your time to help us grow and build a solid infrastructure that will sustain this organization for decades to come--our true legacy to those who will stand upon our shoulders.

“And so, lifting as we climb, onward and upward we go, struggling and striving, and hoping that the buds and blossoms of our desires will burst into glorious fruition ere long. With courage, born of success achieved in the past, with a keen sense of the responsibility which we shall continue to assume, we look forward to a future large with promise and hope. Seeking no favors because of our color, nor patronage because of our needs, we knock at the bar of justice, asking an equal chance.” -- Mary Church Terrell

Be ENCOURAGED, Be EXCELLENT, BE EMPOWERED, BE YOU!

Women of Color in Pharma Second Annual Conference Highlights

WOCIP 2018 was amazing!

Phenomenal women from the pharmaceutical industry filled the room with their brilliance and accomplishments at the sold-out Women of Color in Pharma Second Annual Conference.

WOCIP 2018: Lessons for Work & Life

Keynote speaker Denice Torres, J.D., MBA, founder and CEO, The Ignited Company, motivated all with her rallying cry, “Who’s in charge? You are!” Denice advised “to influence people, meet them where they are,” and take on tough assignments to “continuously reinvent yourself.” Denice encouraged the crowd to “do you, in the most authentic way possible” and “celebrate yourself!” She also inspired all to identify and conquer their personal ‘kryptonite’ such as fear, failure and perfectionism.

WOCIP 2018: The Future is Now!

Keynote speaker Dr. Claire Nelson, futurist, founder and Chief Ideation Leader at The Futures Forum, hit the stage with a spring in her step and cheers from the crowd. Dr. Nelson reminded us that “our world is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, only time telling how the technology of tomorrow will be shared.” She also noted that “agility allows you to change, and adaptability means you can change.” Her advice? “If it’s not working, get over yourself and try a different way.” With a thought-provoking, futurist lens, Dr. Nelson also challenged the women of WOCIP to use their talents to improve the lives of all women globally.

WOCIP 2018: Innovation, Technology, Disruption, Thought-Leadership.

Saturday afternoon started with an exciting and informative message from Trudy Bourgeois, WOCIP Advisory Council member and CEO of the Center for Workforce Excellence. Trudy gave the attendees clear, practical and actionable strategies to implement in their companies to show that they are poised and ready to be thought-leaders, disrupters and change agents. Trudy also challenged the crowd to remember that they are in the ‘business of people’ and should always consider the human factor while embracing technology and innovation.

Trudy's presentation was followed by a healthcare innovation panel focused on disruptive innovation and technology. Panelists Peju Oshisanya, Director/Clinical Programme Leader, Benevolent AI and Cheryl Badger, Manager, Change Management, Northrop Grumman Corporation both shared their wisdom about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain, helping to demystify these topics and advising the crowd to embrace rather than fear these technologies.

Dr. Claire Nelson reiterated her advice for women of color to be adaptable and shared that she too has changed her perspective on technologies such as AI, in her work as a futurist and champion for innovation. Joe Shields, President/Co-Founder, Health Accelerators LLC reflected on his career journey in the healthcare innovation space and shared some sage wisdom with the crowd including a 'drop the mike' moment advising the crowd to 'Be ruthless with your time!'.

"All these wonderful messages you've heard today mean nothing if you don't take action. We can dream all we want to dream, but history will mark something about us based upon the choices that we make." - Trudy Bourgeois
