Congratulations to Emma Claxton, Process Engineer, who has won an Emerging Leaders Award at this year’s ISPE UK Affiliate Awards.

Emma was nominated in the Influence and Leadership category. In receiving the award, Emma was also recognised for her involvement in promoting women in engineering.

“I am honoured to be one of this year’s winners of the ISPE Emerging Leaders Awards”, said Emma. “I have been fortunate to work on different initiatives and projects with PM Group, where I have been able to demonstrate my leadership in complex technical environments.”

Emma joined PM Group in 2018 as a graduate on the NEXT Graduate Programme. From the outset, she was an advocate of corporate responsibility initiatives. More recently, Emma joined our Voice of the People group to champion diversity and inclusion initiatives.

“I enjoy helping develop people and inspiring future female engineering professionals. Building on my involvement with ISPE's Women in Pharma group, I want to encourage girls to take STEM subjects. Many opportunities are available to them to make significant contributions to society in this sector.”

Declan Sullivan, UK Managing Director, congratulated Emma by saying, “We are delighted that Emma has won an ISPE Emerging Leader Award. As a highly dedicated professional with a sincere interest in those around her, it is no surprise she has been recognised. In particular, we value her dedication and
support to the role out of our diversity and inclusion strategy.”
