Pharmacy Women For Purdue
Women for Purdue (WFP) was founded in 2003 to encourage and celebrate women's leadership in giving to Purdue. Their educational programs strive to cultivate future generations of volunteers and philanthropists for the University and for their communities.
In August, 2008, the Pharmacy Women for Purdue (PWFP) program was established as an extension of Women for Purdue to provide an opportunity for Pharmacy alumnae to support programs that advance women in pharmacy careers and celebrate the contributions that alumnae of the College have made, inside and outside of Purdue.
With input from alumnae and current female students in the College of Pharmacy, steering committee members recommended that the primary focus of the group would be fostering interaction between current female students and alumnae. Suggested topics included mentoring, learning about diverse career paths, professional development, the transition from student to working professional, balancing career and family, networking, career advancement, standing out in the field as a young professional, and communication skills.
If you are a Pharmacy Alumna and would like more information about Pharmacy Women for Purdue, or if you have suggestions for other possible events or topics of interest for the group, please contact Dana Neary, Manager of Alumni Relations and Special Events, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (756) 494-2632.
