Pharmacy: 10 Women of Influence

Our poll enters its last week… vote now to help identify the women who are leading the profession into the future

Well over half of all Australian pharmacists are women, a number set to increase given the predominance of women in pharmacy undergraduate courses.


We want your vote

AJP has decided that the role of these leaders of the profession deserve to be identified and recognised.

We will be running a series of articles looking at different aspects of the problems, issues and impacts that women in pharmacy experience and confront.

The centrepiece of our campaign will be a poll to determine who people in pharmacy believe are the 10 women who have the greatest influence over the profession and its direction.

We want you to think about the female leaders of the profession you perceive as having an influence over the current and future direction of pharmacy practice.

From these votes we will collate a final list of the 10 women who are regarded as having the biggest current and future influence.

To vote, submit below. You can also email

Voting will be closed at 5pm on Friday 7 October, with the final list of 10 to be revealed in the November print edition of AJP, and in an early November AJP Daily newsletter. 

You can vote for as many candidates as you see fit.
