Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement

Colorado Pharmacists Society (CPS) recognizes, celebrates, and draws from our differences because it makes us better.  CPS is committed to developing and supporting a diverse, inclusive and equitable community in order to ignite opportunities for all pharmacy professionals.  Diversity empowers us to connect, belong and grow as one society, one voice. 

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is a priority for CPS. We are looking to evaluate how, as a professional association, we can foster DEI in our organization and in the profession of pharmacy. We are looking for interested pharmacists, technicians, and interns to lead or join a new taskforce to evaluate how CPS can advance and incorporate this priority into our operations and strategic plan.
