Pharmacy Forum NI is pleased to announce the details of the third and final webinar in our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) 2021 three-part series.

Taking place Tuesday 23 November 2021, this upcoming webinar will focus on the theme Dealing with disabilities (inc. mental & physical health) in pharmacy: Are we doing enough? and will be of interest to the NI pharmacy profession, pharmacy employers, pharmacy representative bodies and key stakeholders.

We have an excellent panel of speakers and sessions lined up for this event. Speakers will cover a range of areas including mental health and the importance for pharmacists to prioritise self-care in order to avoid burnout, as well as attitudes to physical disability and barriers that still exist in the workplace.

Our EDI partner, the Equality Commission NI, will update participants on disability legislation and related discrimination.

Also represented on the panel will be the Northern Ireland Rare Disease Partnership and Disability Action NI, the largest Northern Ireland wide pan-disability organisation working with disabled people with various disabilities: physical disabilities, learning disabilities, sensory disabilities, hidden disabilities and mental health disabilities.


Marking 1 March 2021, Zero Discrimination Day, Pharmacy Forum NI launched a new initiative aimed at advancing, encouraging and supporting Equality, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) in the Northern Ireland pharmacy workplace.

As part of its EDI activity, the Forum has organised throughout 2021 a 3-part EDI CPD webinar series – Diversity & Inclusion in NI Pharmacy – Creating the right Culture. The first of these took place on 23 March on the case for inclusion and handling race, with almost 70 participants and 98% indicating in the event poll that they found it of excellent or very good value.

The webinar series has been set up to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion within the NI pharmacy profession that aims to cultivate a safe and inclusive workplace environment; keeps us in step with our increasingly diversified workforce and population; and supports current and future workforce needs.
