As we celebrate International Women’s Day, we are delighted to announce that Hallmarq is to be a joint headline sponsor at Veterinary Woman.

Aimed at inspiring women in the veterinary profession, the initiative will provide resources to help increase confidence, overcome challenges, and encourage leadership aspirations across the industry.

Committed to Excellence

The decision to join the initiative in supporting Veterinary Woman and its community underscores Hallmarq’s deep commitment to excellence in the veterinary profession. It is part of an exciting collaboration that sees Boehringer Ingleheim as joint sponsor. Hallmarq’s CMO, Lynn Bender, CMO said:

We are excited to share our experiences and learn from this diverse group of peers.”

We are delighted to welcome Hallmarq as joint headline sponsor and celebrate their commitment to helping women throughout the profession aspire to achieve more in all aspects of their lives – whether that is better health, improved work-life balance, or career development and stepping up to leadership.”

Championing Potential

There’s a busy year ahead for 2022 as Veterinary Woman plans to explore themes important to their community, such as imposter syndrome, lone worker safety, flexible working and thriving in leadership. The editorial board has been specifically chosen to aid that direction and to maximise its reach on the veterinary community.

Claire Newton-Ransom, editor of Veterinary Woman, commented:

We admire Hallmarq for its impressive commitment to animal welfare and clinical excellence, and share the vision of improving standards across the industry, and for the people who care for animals. The team and Veterinary Woman and I look forward to this exciting collaboration.”
