Women of Color in Pharma (WOCIP) has emerged as a leading organization teaching our industry how to empower women of color through bold action.
Their value to all of us is best explained in their “Our Why” statement, where they commit to “Creating a nurturing and safe environment for self-reflection and discovery amongst Black and Latina women to foster personal and professional growth that will address a critical gap required to promote innovation and leadership.”
Through many initiatives, not least of which is their annual conference, WOCIP has been a leading voice to promote the professional growth and development of female leaders of color in the pharmaceutical industry.
And now, ArcheMedX is honored to announce our partnership with WOCIP. We commit to amplifying their voice and their mission, through both support as a member, and as an active ally.
And as an ally, we want to highlight WOCIP’s first learning activity powered by ArcheMedX on the Ready platform, “Ally is a Verb.”
This learning activity, anchored by WOCIP’s recent panel discussion, is infused with valuable resources and tools and serves to illuminate the experiences and perspectives of Black and Latina professionals. This learning experience also exposes the responsibilities and opportunities that white and male allies have to elevate and support women of color in their professional journeys.
When ArcheMedX committed to take action to uplift and amplify Black and POC voices in recent weeks, we sought out new partners and specific opportunities. This partnership is just one way that we seek to take positive action where we have influence.
“WOCIP has been instrumental in the growth of so many admirable leaders in the pharma industry, and we are committed to amplifying their voice and the need for allyship. The time for dramatic societal change is long overdue, and the entire ArcheMedX team is aligned in this mission and honored to play a more active role. ”
We will continue to seek additional ways to support the Black community, and we urge others to do the same.
As we stated before, there is no excuse for discrimination and mistreatment of anyone, especially because of their race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or any other characteristic. We must ALL commit to taking action and that begins in our own small corner of the world.
