Student here! Thank you for hosting.

I love how you phrased that, "an extra sense of responsibility!"

How did you navigate imposter syndrome despite obtaining your PharmD?
Gabriela Nieves
26:59
Good evening everyone! Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions! I am a P3 student at a PWI and I am trying to grow a community of BIPOC student pharmacists! What advice would you give in cultivating this community beyond social circles?

What have you found rewarding as a pharmacist?
William

Thank you for sharing your experiences! I'm a 2020 graduate now working in medical information. How important is it to set career benchmarks and milestones for yourself professionally and personally? Would it be worth hiring a career coach or seek out a mentor within your work place or professional organizations?
Adrienne Maximin
37:37
"You are the standard!" so powerful!
Charlene Augustin

Thank you, it's do refreshing to hear your perspective!
Jasity Adams

Thank you for sharing your experiences!! I am a recent graduate and was just offered a salary position and I recently worked at the store and the techs told me not to come to the store because the pharmacist are racist and will try and get you in trouble (checking behind you watching your every move) what would you do in this case?
Charlene Augustin
51:27
You could always join the national chapter, there are conventions we can attend as students =)
Chanel Stokes
51:59
I didn’t know that Charlene. Thank you!
Adrienne Maximin
52:16
I agree. I found my mentor there and it's been one of the best decisions I've made so far!
Gabriela Nieves
54:32
Thank you for the recommendation about creating more advocacy within SNPhA!
Billy Brown

@Jasity. If I needed that job, I’d accept it and be the best pharmacist I could be and document my actions. I personally don’t worry about people watching or going behind me. I would use resources from another place to help guide my training if I didn’t trust the people who were training me at the site. If they were purposely training me inappropriately, I would document it and challenge them on it. You can’t be afraid to challenge someone in a professional manner. Don’t add unnecessary pressure to your life worrying about someone watching or going behind you. This is from over 20 years of experience.

Gabriela, I would start off with perhaps leading a subcommittee of SNPhA or a key project, then perhaps taking up a leadership role or a more active visible role that will bring others together. You probably don't have to create a new organization when you can tap into the resources already established. We can connect if you want

Hello all! I’m a P3 student at Xavier University College of Pharmacy and I’m so excited to be on the call with such successful black leaders! What/who aspired you to keep going during your toughest moment as a pharmacy student or as a practicing pharmacist? Basically your ‘Why’? Also, what is one thing you would tell your younger self knowing what you know now?
Jasity Adams

Thank you so much @billybrown

I’m so thankful for this session. I’ve taken a step back and needed this reassurance.

What about crying?
Takira Morrison| High Point University
01:19:21
Ahahaha
Ryan C. Marable
01:19:23
Therapy is lit.
Chanel Stokes
01:19:28
🤣
Cory L. Holland
01:19:31
You better cry...Ima go cry right now
Candice Allen
01:19:44
How do you go about obtaining mentors without going right up to them like "hey, can you be my mentor"?
Takira Morrison| High Point University
01:20:10
^^^ Good question!
Chanel Stokes
01:20:26
Great question Candice! I struggle with that
Takira Morrison| High Point University
01:20:30
You can cry!
LuShawna Lawson
01:20:51
cry in private
Cory L. Holland
01:20:58
In the dark...Yes Dr. Marable brings up a great point
Charlene Augustin
01:21:47
It's easy to be the angry black ...
Cory L. Holland
01:21:57
Yes, it's a fine line to walk to shoulder a lot of frustration and not let it out and be accused of being an angry black man
Charlene Augustin
01:22:20
how do you handle those situations?
Ryan C. Marable
01:22:30
I've seen MANY people cry at work. I just don't know if ME crying would be perceived. Is that healthy for me?
Leonard Edloe, Th. M, Pharm.D.
01:22:41
Men stop internalizing your emotions. It will kill you. It caused me to have a heartache. Take a walk and I’ll admit. I have cried.
Ryan C. Marable
01:23:06
That is so very true Dr. Edloe.
Kharmen Gray
01:23:47
I’ve screamed in the car after work 😭, but I haven’t cried.
Amber Carter
01:25:38
Yes! I’m 6’1 and a black woman, so it’s very difficult.
Ryan C. Marable
01:26:21
Dr. Chijioke calm demeanor is his smile!
Ryan C. Marable
01:27:26
Yes @Amber. Being aware of your demeanor and physical presence is an important skill.
Sheldon Barnes (Xavier Uni. College of Pharmacy)
01:27:29
Yes, being emotionally aware is a great skill as a leader! In collaborating with other strong minded individuals, emotions are bound to come about
Ryan C. Marable
01:28:20
@Amber No need to apologize for anything. But being aware is a good measure to prevent any misunderstandings.
Ryan C. Marable
01:28:56
Yes @Sheldon @EmotionalAwareness
Amber Carter
01:29:08
Very true. It feels like it doesn’t matter how soft spoken one tries to be, if what you say is in opposition of the others, you automatically get labeled as “angry” or “difficult”.
Amber Carter
01:30:02
And by others I mean nonblack people.
Charlene Augustin
01:30:57
This maybe a taboo question, but have you had pushback from other POC in your careers?
Cory L. Holland
01:31:17
I think that's a great question Charlene
Cory L. Holland
01:32:53
Lord deliver my facial expressions

My first job was in a small town in W Texas, I wanted to confront a patient at my job who referred to my boss as “colored” about why it’s an offensive term but I had to remember I was the only Black person at work that day and I still had 10 hours left. Didn’t wanna get labeled as “angry” or “aggressive”.
Eden Keller
01:33:50
Yes, Kharmen!
Cory L. Holland
01:38:39
