The newly created conference, which takes place this December, will provide the pharma industry with an opportunity to showcase, explore and highlight the importance of diversity and inclusion across the sector.
The headline sponsorship is part of Well’s work on creating a more inclusive workplace culture following signing the RPS Inclusion and Wellbeing Pledge and the BRC Diversity & Inclusion Charter earlier this year.
Fiona Llewelyn, Head of Digital and Executive Sponsor for Well Pharmacy’s Inclusion Working Group said: “We are thrilled to be the headline sponsor of the inaugural Pharmacy Business Diversity Conference.
“It’s so important for us as the UK’s largest independent pharmacy chain to promote equality, diversity and inclusion across everything that we do. We’re just at the start of our journey and have recently launched our Inclusion Working Group, which aims to drive inclusion through everything we do – for our patients and colleagues.
“At Well, we recognise the value in an inclusive workplace and understand that all colleagues have differences and similarities across race, gender, age, religion, experience and sexuality, with viewpoints coming from their individual social, economic and cultural identities.
“We want Well to be a place colleagues want to come to work and where everyone feels able and safe to bring their whole authentic self, whatever their background, cultural identity, and lived experiences. This conference will provide an important platform to the pharma industry to celebrate, highlight and showcase the fantastic work already taking place across the sector, and more importantly explore what more we can do to make pharmacy a truly inclusive sector to work in.”
