Why Women Should Join Women Leaders in Pharma: A Conversation with Founding Member, Tamara Lovi

Updated: May 21

As the landscape of the pharmaceutical industry continues to shift and evolve – and the challenges and opportunities when it comes to career development with it – organizations like Women Leaders in Pharma (WLP) are becoming increasingly vital. We had the privilege of sitting down with Tamara Lovi, one of the pioneers behind WLP, to delve into why women in the industry should consider joining the organization whose focus it is to empower women to reach their full potential.

Q: What motivated you and others to establish Women Leaders in Pharma (WLP)?

Well, it stemmed from a recognition of the need for a supportive network tailored specifically to women in the pharmaceutical sector. There’s immense talent among women in this industry, but often, opportunities for networking, mentorship, and skill development weren’t as readily available. Around six years ago, we wanted to change that narrative and create a platform where women could come together, support each other, raise our voices, and thrive collectively. There is nothing better than women supporting other women. 

Q: What unique benefits does WLP offer to its members?

At WLP, we are focused on skill building, while providing a trusted and inspiring environment. Over the years we have offered a number of programs aimed at nurturing the growth and advancement of our members. Firstly, it’s all about facilitating connections and networking – whether it’s pairing mentees with coaches, or simply engaging with like-minded individuals – WLP provides a safe environment for meaningful connections. Additionally, we offer various resources and opportunities for skill development, be it through workshops, events, or personalized coaching sessions. Ultimately, it’s a community driven by the shared goal of empowering women in pharma.

Q: How would you say women can make the most out of their membership in WLP?

The beauty of WLP lies in its versatility and adaptability to individual needs and aspirations. For those looking to enhance their leadership skills, getting involved as a volunteer is a fantastic hands-on approach. I like to say it’s a low-risk environment where you can hone your abilities. Furthermore, our monthly events cover a wide range of topics relevant to career advancement and personal growth. Whether it’s seeking coaching, or even learning to become a mentor yourself, WLP offers myriad avenues for development. And for those unsure of where to begin, our team is always just an email away, ready to offer advice and support.

Q: You have been in this industry for a while. In your opinion, what sets WLP apart from other professional networks?

I believe what truly sets WLP apart is its unwavering commitment to fostering a culture of support and empowerment. It’s not just about networking or skill development; it’s about building genuine connections and lifting each other up. Our members know that they’re part of a community that genuinely cares about their success and well-being. That sense of camaraderie and solidarity is what makes WLP truly special.

Q: Any final thoughts or words of encouragement for women considering joining WLP?

To any woman in the pharmaceutical industry who may be contemplating joining WLP, I would say this: don’t hesitate. Embrace this opportunity to connect, learn, and grow alongside a community of remarkable women who are dedicated to seeing you succeed. Your journey in this industry is made infinitely richer and more fulfilling when you have a support system like WLP by your side. Together, let’s shatter barriers, defy expectations, and pave the way for a brighter, more inclusive future in pharma leadership.
