Activity Overview

Curious how to promote more inclusive conversations or how to navigate discussions about diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging? Join us to learn about the fundamentals of inclusive conversations. You will have the opportunity to explore your unique identities and how they manifest in our beliefs, relationships, and pharmacy workplace. By the end of the webinar, we invite you to apply these strategies to foster more inclusive and critical conversations about these important topics in your health-system pharmacy practice. 

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

This activity was planned to meet the educational needs of health-system pharmacy staff, faculty at colleges of pharmacy, and preceptors. 

After participating in this CPE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe how our identities, implicit bias, and beliefs can influence our conversations
  • Evaluate approaches to facilitate self-exploration and inclusive conversations
  • Develop a plan to assess, implement, and monitor our conversations
