Abstract: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls is a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) included in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015. A balance in gender has also been the focus in scientific areas in which Medicinal Chemists are involved. In this communication, the characterization in gender, age, and degree of the members of the Division of Medicinal Chemistry of the Portuguese Chemical Society will be presented as well as activities developed in the last years as the former President of the Division. A personal perspective in Research as an Integrated Member of the Interdisciplinary Centre of Marine and Environmental Research and in Academia as a Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the Faculty of Pharmacy of University of Porto will be presented. Initiatives to raise awareness to MedChem community are welcome for learning, training, and practice.
