EDI Forum

Our vision is to ensure that FPM is diverse and inclusive at every level of the organisation. We have a significant opportunity to partner across our membership to create an inclusive environment that enables everyone, irrespective of ethnicity, race, ability status, age, politics, sexual orientation, gender or religion to reach their full potential. We want to enable all people to contribute as effectively as possible in the delivery of pharmaceutical medicine to the greater benefit of society. We wish to establish a culture of change and an environment that is respectful, welcomes open debate, learning and a genuine acceptance of people as their authentic selves. We will welcome feedback from members of FPM, and will continue to enhance this narrative as we move forwards together.

How can FPM’s EDI Forum help you and vice versa?

Given the challenges faced by society and the COVID pandemic which has highlighted multiple societal inequalities, we have seen how we can effectively unite across society, public services, industry and academia and achieve positive results when a shared goal is identified.

Our main areas of focus are: driving change with inclusiveness (bringing together a diverse group of members across all levels of the organisation), finding ways to support all members to contribute fully (but particularly those who have previously been under-represented at FPM) and maximise the satisfaction they gain from being FPM members. We also want to encourage and promote EDI within the industry and to share learnings across Pharma.
