Delta PM Attends ISPE's Women in Pharma Event!

“People who know me know that I have a difficult time attending events due to my fear of networking.  I am very glad that I didn’t let my fear stop me from attending my first ISPE event and that I also got to share this experience with other members of our professional community.  Everyone was so welcoming! Everyone was also eager to ask difficult questions and share their experiences.

The Women in Pharma event made me realize that the keys to success in this industry include: learning from the experiences of others, applying those lessons to your own development, and taking risks that fit with your vision of where you want to go. There’s no one-path-fits-all here, no magical equation to be successful.  It was very motivating to spend the night with colleagues who were willing to openly share about experiences that may have been difficult in the past, but were turned into stepping stones as they moved forward in their career.  Getting over my fear of networking is one of my top goals for this next year.”

“I am thankful for having had the opportunity to attend the ISPE Women in Pharma event, where I witnessed insightful discussions among fearless women in Pharma.  I strongly connected with the topics that were discussed, as a female director who had transitioned from being a consulting engineer to now actively managing Delta PM‘s Bay Area Operations.  I would like to share a few key takeaways from fellow women in Pharma that resonated powerfully with me:

“Don’t let the fear of taking on a new role and leaving engineering behind stop you from achieving your full potential.” – Anamica Srinivasaragavan, BioMarin

“It is important to set healthy boundaries and have a mentor who can provide you guidance in your career.” – Andrea Karlsson, Boehringer Ingelheim

“Always learn something in every situation you are in and have a different perspective.” – Kathy Yi, Sangamo Therapeutics

“Believe in yourself and push your limits, defy the odds.” – Janet Wendorf, Bayer

Don’t sell yourself short” – Tasha Tenturier, Intellipro

This was an absolutely powerful and enlightening night and I’m looking forward to the next Women In Pharma event!”
