DEI Why Does it Matter for Virginia
The words diversity
have rightfully come to the forefront of many a lexicon over the past year. APTA President, Dr. Sharon Dunn, released a resounding statement in May 2020 regarding the APTA's position against racism and systemic inequalities, and called for commitment, innovation, and strategic investment to support diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in our profession. Many companies, in healthcare, academia and beyond have begun emphasizing initiatives to improve DEI in their professional communities.
