Get involved! Celebrating South Asian Heritage Month

We’re celebrating South Asian Heritage Month 18 July-17 August and we'd love you to get involved!

South Asian Heritage Month highlights the history and identity of British South Asians to better understand how Britain became the diverse country it is today.

Complete our social media cards

We want to create with you profiles of South Asian pharmacy professionals which describe aspects of South Asian culture that make you proud.

Pride in your culture could include your family, your faith, values and identity, the arts, food, music, or any other aspect you’d like to highlight via our social media cards.

During the month we're collaborating with the Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK, Pharmacy Technicians of Colour, the Female Pharmacy Leaders Network and members of Boots Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Business Resource Group Leadership Team to highlight the diversity of South Asian communities and hear the lived experiences of people who work in pharmacy. 

Log onto our livestreams

Our first discussion will be on mental health in South Asian communities on Friday 29th July 12-1pm. We'll also be talking about what it means to be South Asian with Pharmacy Technicians of Colour in a panel discussion on 1st August 7-8pm. If you can’t make it, you can always catch up later with our on-demand service. Look out for details about an exciting face to face event coming up in September!

Get in touch!

We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to create a social media card with us, write a blog about how your culture has shaped you or share any ideas. Get in touch with Amandeep Doll, Head of Professional belonging at [email protected]
