What you can do
Together, we can tackle racial inequality in our pharmacy workplaces.
As a pharmacist, here are some actions you can take, and some resources to help you understand racial inequality.
Zero tolerance for Microaggressions
Race microaggressions are the everyday, subtle, intentional — but often unintentional — interactions or behaviours that communicate bias based on race.
We've put together a page about racial microaggressions - including how to challenge them if you encounter them, and how positive micro-affirmations can make all the difference to workplace culture. Here you can also find out workshop Dr Joan Myers OBE and our downloadable posters.
Watch Bayo Adegbite, Tase Oputu, and Lola Dabiri in their conversation with RPS Head of Professional Belonging Amandeep Doll as they share their perspectives on the significance of representation, its impact on their personal and professional lives, and why it matters for a brighter, more inclusive future.
