CHPA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Policy Statement
CHPA is committed to fostering, cultivating, and maintaining a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion to make us better able to achieve our mission of empowering self-care by preserving and expanding choice and availability of consumer healthcare products. We are stronger as a team that welcomes diverse perspectives, experiences, and approaches.
CHPA recognizes that each employee can bring to work their unique life experiences, knowledge, ingenuity, innovation, self-expression, capabilities, and talent. We believe that our employees’ differences including, but not limited to, age, color, disability, ethnicity, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status and veteran status, enhance our culture, our reputation, and the association’s achievements. Our commitment to excellence, integrity, teamwork, empowerment, and development leads CHPA to foster an inclusive culture with diverse people, thoughts, and systems that will ensure a productive, safe, welcoming, and successful environment for all.
CHPA seeks to acknowledge and dismantle any inequities within our policies, systems, and programs. This includes, but is not limited to, our practices and policies on recruitment, selection, onboarding, and retention; compensation and benefits; professional development and training; evaluations and promotions; social and recreational programs; and layoffs and terminations. The association will implement accountability systems to regularly identify areas for improvement. If an employee has concerns and/or questions about this policy, they are encouraged to seek out their supervisor and/or HR.
