FARE Is Committed to the Community
Thirty-three million Americans are impacted by potentially life-threatening food allergies, including a disproportionate percentage of persons of color. FARE is dedicated to ensuring that every individual in the food allergy community has a seat at the table.
FARE has made meaningful and significant changes over the past two years to prioritize Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access (DEIA) to advance conversation and collaboration to ensure that patients of color have seats at the table and their needs are met. We have diversified our staff, resulting in 46% female senior leadership team and a full staff comprised of 37% individuals of color. We have elevated the Voice of the Patient to ensure diverse populations are represented. FARE is also driving our role as research and medical leader in multiple geographies, and helping shine a light on light on food insecurity and issues of safety, access and choice, particularly during COVID-19.
FARE’s holistic Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access initiative approach will enable significant impact for the diverse food allergy community. We are hopeful that we will create long lasting change that will make more patients safe from risk.
