We celebrate and champion our diverse perspectives, backgrounds, cultures, and nationalities throughout the calendar year, from our bi-weekly company-wide happy hours to our internal affinity groups.
We have a rotational diversity committee that consists of leadership and employees from across our organization. As a team, they develop and plan ongoing programming, events, speakers, cultural celebrations, and more.
Beginning with our scholarship in partnership with Howard University's College of Pharmacy, Capital Rx leads a growing number of initiatives at the interpersonal and organizational levels to support our communities.
A story of incredible perseverance, courage, and grit, Dr. Smith became the first Black physician to earn a medical degree in 1837. He opened the first Black-owned pharmacy in the United States, which served as a meeting hub for abolitionist thought leaders like Frederick Douglas.
Black men and women are critically underrepresented in healthcare, comprising only 5.25% of pharmacists and 6% of surgeons and doctors. Capital Rx is committed to paving a more equitable path for the future of the industry – and this scholarship is just the beginning.
I’ve been at Capital Rx for 3 years and love the company’s mission, culture, and most of all, the people. The company has done an amazing job creating a work environment that is supportive, engaging, and encourages innovation and creativity by celebrating everyone’s individual unique perspective, background, and experiences. Employee resource groups such as CAPTAIN also support the company’s efforts as an inclusive employer, where we’re able to connect with our colleagues at different levels of the organization within a mostly remote workforce.
