FIP Development Goal 10 Workforce Element

Globally, we will have:

Clear strategies for addressing equity and diversity inequalities in pharmaceutical workforce development, continued education and training, and career progression opportunities.


  • Demonstration of strategies to address the equity and diversity inequalities across all pharmaceutical workforce and career development opportunities.
  • Ensure full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in pharmaceutical environments; avoidable barriers to participation for all social categories are identified and addressed.
  • Engagement and adoption of workforce development policies and enforceable legislation for the promotion of equity and equality; policies and cultures for the empowerment of all without bias.
  • This should be applicable to academic capacity and leadership development activities.
