Our Story

Black Pharma was founded by Kim Sholuade (nee Sowemimo), Monsurat Morenikeji Hanson, Jennifer Amponsah Adjalo, and Stephanie Oyesola. Four women who came together with a mission to create greater representation of black professionals across the Pharmaceutical industry. During their personal career journeys, they connected and supported each other through the challenges of being under-represented in the workplace. They shared their  knowledge, networks and resources to ensure that they and others were able to achieve their career aspirations.

The small friendship group soon grew to  a diverse community of both young and experienced professionals coming together to encourage, lift and celebrate one another. With the support of our allies, the community tackled the challenges of workplace biases and unequal access to opportunities, removing one barrier at a time. Black Pharma is the founders continued commitment to achieve racial equity in the workplace and support many more talented black students, graduates and professionals to maximise their potential and achieve their career goals.
