Women in Leadership – International Women’s Day 2023

2021-2022 marked the first time in the history of the Society of Apothecaries that three women are holding Leadership roles.

Marking International Women’s Day, Maria Ferran, Faculty Manager of The History & Philosophy of Medicine & Pharmacy and Karen Okemiri, Faculty Manager, Conflict & Catastrophe Medicine are sitting down with three of the Society’s prominent women, Professor Jane Anderson CBE, Immediate Past Master, Christina Dale, President Conflict and Catastrophe Medicine and Briony Hudson, Immediate Past President, Faculty of the History & Philosophy of Medicine & Pharmacy.

They are sharing how they felt, their aims, and what it is like to juggle many roles.

We hope you enjoy celebrating their journeys with us.
