Delivering race equality in Pharmacy
After the murder of George Floyd was caught on film and the subsequent rise of the Black Lives Matter campaign, most of the world has an enhanced awareness of racial inequality. Whether you call it ‘institutional racism’ or ‘unconscious bias’, racial inequality exists and together those in the pharmacy profession can work to overcome and end this social injustice.
In April 2020, the PDA built on its long history of defending individual victims of racism with the launch of the BAME Pharmacists’ Network. This network aims to proactively tackle the issue and invites pharmacists to hear a range of perspectives on what can be done and how things can be improved.
