Letters from Women in Pharmacy: Stories on Integrating Life and Career focuses on the unique challenges and opportunities faced by women in pharmacy. This collection of 31 personal letters represents experiences of women from a wide array of backgrounds and career paths. Each letter is filled with practical advice, insights, and compelling stories on developing strong support systems and maintaining healthy perspectives on the many roles that women balance to inspire generations of future pharmacy leaders.
This Letters publication was stimulated by the ASHP 2016 Women in Pharmacy Leadership Steering Committee recommendation to ASHP: Proactively collect and share stories, case studies and scenarios of how women have addressed gender, workplace, work-life integration, and leadership challenges. The power of this publication comes from each person’s specific journey all unique but similar in reaching for their potential as both a pharmacist and woman. It emphasizes the multiple successful approaches to blending a career and personal life.
