Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: A Toolkit

Resources Curated by Pharmacists for Pharmacists

Recognizing our role in addressing and dismantling systems of inequity, injustice, and exclusion in our healthcare systems, the DEI Task Force (2021-2022) and DEI Committee (2022-2023) developed this toolkit to provide every HOPA member the resources to increase awareness, develop, and instill DEI principles in each member’s personal and professional environment.

Today, the HOPA DEI Advisory Group manages the toolkit. We recognize each person’s journey is unique, but we hope that these resources will be invaluable in your personal and professional development.

HOPA's core values include Leadership, Collaboration, Integrity, Responsiveness, Innovation, Diversity, and Inclusion, and these guide the organization’s work in five key areas: Professional Practice, Education, Research & Quality, Organizational Excellence, and Advocacy & Awareness.

We recognize the long-standing systems of racism and inequity that have shaped the experiences of our members and patients, particularly those with diverse backgrounds, beliefs,, and lived experiences, and we acknowledge the role we have in dismantling these systems through action and commitment to the ongoing pursuit of equity and justice.
