The ASHP Task Force on Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion recently completed preliminary recommendations for steps ASHP should take to address issues of racial diversity, equity, and inclusion impacting Black Americans and other communities of color in the organization's membership.
The task force worked in subgroups to develop the recommendations, which are organized by focus areas and target audience. The focus areas include (1) governance and committees; (2) education and training, research, and publications; and (3) advocacy, marketing, and communications.
All ASHP members are encouraged to comment on the draft recommendations by December 10. Task Force Chair and Board Liaison Paul C. Walker, Pharm.D., FASHP, will share insights from the Task Force discussions and answer member questions during a Town Hall on December 7 at 1:00 p.m. ET during the ASHP 2020 Midyear Clinical Meeting.
