I am an Indian female and I feel that I have experienced racism in the workplace.
Racism in pharmacy
I worked as a temporary duty pharmacy manager two years ago for some months. I experienced racism and psychological bullying.
I feel there is some prejudice towards people who come from ethnic backgrounds that are not well represented within the pharmacy profession.
Some members of staff made it so obvious that I was black. Anytime I opened the conversation with them they never spoke to me.
It catches people by surprise that they are called out on it. In the past this has given me the impression that all forms of racism still exist everywhere.
I really hope this doesn’t come across as self-indulgent, but I know it may do, so apologies if that’s the case.
