As minority professionals, we have a tremendous amount to offer to our patients and to the organizations we align with. If the company culture does not embrace you, it is important to work collaboratively within and outside of the organization (NPhA) to bring about the change you want to see.
Tamara McCants
01:01:16
Dawn Moore!!!!!!😍😍😍😍😍
Chelsa Deanes
01:02:37
I have heard it a thousand times. Who you know makes a big difference! Would you recommend contacting the hiring manager or other company employees directly via email (if their information is available) to express interest in a position or... to just submit the application and send a follow up email 2-3 days afterwards?
Stephanie Spence
01:02:52
I think NPhA should develop content for its member on this subject. Given the current social climate, there is more value/power in diversity than conformance that should be leveraged. The pharmacy profession is not exceptional to this
Stephanie Spence
01:03:14

Dr. Wallene B
01:05:42
Have at least 2-3 questions for the interview. NEVER say you don't have any questions.
North, Frank
01:08:25
@Stephanie would you be willing to work with us (NPhA) on creating that content? We can identify one of the committees to lead the charge.

Stephanie Spence

Stephanie Spence
01:14:05
I agree shanice
Stephanie Spence
01:18:00
I think NPhA should explore publication of industry salary benchmarks by practice setting. There should be a voluntary poll of the membership to at least help NPhA members know where to start
Lakesha Butler
01:19:29
We are coming to a close, please place any remaining questions in the chat
Stephanie Spence
