Queensland Pharmacy Guild receives Government funding for Women in Pharmacy
The Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Queensland Branch has been named as a successful recipient as part of the Queensland Government’s Advancing Women in Business Initiative.
The initiative aims to provide female pharmacists, interns, pharmacy students and pharmacy staff with support, education and resources to enable more women to start and grow their own businesses and attain positions of leadership.
As part of the initiative, the Guild will conduct four face-to-face education and networking sessions throughout regional and metropolitan areas of Queensland.
Queensland Guild Branch Committee Member Amanda Seeto said the sessions will provide expert advice on the steps needed to purchase a pharmacy, and provide networking and mentoring opportunities by showcasing successful women in community pharmacy.
“Industry expert Felicity Crimston of Pitcher Pharmacy will deliver the education component and Queensland Guild Branch Committee Members Cate Whalan, Lucy Walker, Fiona Watson and myself will outline our own journeys into pharmacy ownership and leadership,” Ms Seeto said.
“Felicity has over ten years of experience in financial and management accounting. She has a wealth of knowledge in pharmacy business. Whether you’re new to the industry, or an experienced owner, Felicity will provide best practice advice relevant to all attendees.
“These events are a fantastic opportunity to meet with like-minded women to further enhance your own network.”
The sessions will be held on the 25 March in Townsville, 1 April in Toowoomba, 8 April in Brisbane and 15 April on the Gold Coast.
