Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force

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.

 

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.
