RPS launches campaign to support parents in pharmacy


Share post:

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has launched a new campaign to help parents and carers in pharmacy get the support they need in the workplace as part of its inclusion and diversity work.

“A lack of flexibility in employment can mean work life balance is hard to keep, ramping up the pressure even more,” said RPS.

The society wants to lift some of the burdens on parents and carers and challenge barriers to inclusion in the workplace.

It’ll challenge negative attitudes to parents and carers through a brand new guide to the microaggressions you experience in the workplace. Drop in ABCD meeting at 7pm on 05 October to contribute your ideas.

It wants pharmacists to be able to choose flexible working whenever they need it. Join RPS’s livestream across all its social media channels at 6.30pm on Weds 26 October to hear from two pharmacists about how to make it happen!

It will also produce a guide on returning to work to practice for parents and carers.

It wants pharmacists to understand their rights in the workplace and will signpost to get the help and advice they need.

RPS said: “Have you got a great job share or have a manager who is a great role model? Share your experiences with us I&[email protected] so we can show what’s possible to help others.”
