I joined the PSCI as Centrient representative for PSCI in 2017 and was quickly convinced to actively get engaged in PSCI´s Supplier Capability Work Stream, co-leading the Ethics sub-team. This year I joined the Partnership Committee and started to work with the Board to forge PSCI partnerships with pharmaceutical associations in India. I had the opportunity to work closely with the Supplier Capability Committee to support to conduct the supplier workshop in India and China.
During my three year stint at PSCI, I have been fascinated by the wonderful initiatives of PSCI in transforming the pharmaceutical supply chain. PSCI is encouraging the member companies and supply chains to embrace responsible manufacturing through capability building conferences and AGM meetings. These conferences, where hundreds of professionals and companies descended to think together, sharing their knowledge, success stories, have turned out to be conclave to this transformation.
