“Dr. Terry has spent years volunteering with the Inclusion Center for Community and Justice to create a more inclusive community. She has developed a program that helps pharmacy staff recognize what are implicit biases and how they affect positionality. She helped me become a better, kinder and more inclusive person. Thanks to what she taught me, I was able to chat with colleagues, friends and of my family members of implicit biases and positionality, and helps those around her advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion not only in the workplace, but in all aspects of their lives.
