Brand Ambassadors

The Black Pharma Brand Ambassador group works at the heart of the organisation. We are university students, graduates and early career professionals who are passionate about pursuing a career in Pharma.


​As Black Pharma Ambassadors, we are here to widen access for young diverse people in the pharmaceutical industry. We work to increase access to industry placements, graduate roles and direct entry roles within the pharmaceutical industry by partnering with universities, societies and employers.
