Introduction to equality, diversity and inclusion at FPM and why it is important
The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Forum was formed in April 2021 and is now working to identify priority work streams and the ways in which we can make a real difference for FPM’s membership.
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.
The benefits to FPM and members should be significant; creating a diverse, engaged membership and leadership reflecting the array of businesses, academic institutions and communities that we serve, tangible increases in motivation, creativity and performance. This will add value, not only to FPM, but also provide individuals and their organisations with some of the tools needed to embed Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity.
