Delta PM’s Women Inspired by the ISPE LA’s No Boundaries Panel Discussion Last Month

“No Boundaries on March 7th in Irvine, CA was an inspiring night and the first of its kind. Thao Nguyen, Chair of the Los Angeles ISPE chapter, set the tone for the night by sharing what “No Boundaries” meant to her as a woman in Engineering and Pharma. She then introduced Ariel Kramer, Chief Communications Officer of CELLINK, who served as the moderator for the discussion. The panelists for the evening included Angela Swanton, Site General Manager at TEVA Pharmaceuticals; Jessica Rousset, Chief Operating Officer at CURE Pharmaceutical Corporation; Linda Soo Hoo, PhD, Associate Director of Technical Services at Gilead Sciences; and Elizabeth (Liz) Orwin, PhD, Engineering Department Chair at Harvey Mudd College.  As an attendee, I had the privilege of seeing an intimate glimpse of what No Boundaries meant to each of the panelists. Jessica advised attendees to view every task as an opportunity, to build a reputation with everything you do, and to always be bold and curious. Angela credited a deliberate development plan to have paved her road to her current state. Linda reminded us to be fearless and fear less, while also being less hard on ourselves. In summary, the consensus was to not let boundaries be imposed onto you, but instead create personal boundaries that facilitate your vision – a message that resonated with the room.”
