DEI Committee

In April 2022, the APT Board was presented with a report from the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee with recommendations to begin the process of transforming APT into a more diverse, inclusive, equitable, and relevant organization. The Board has voted to adopt the principles and goals outlined and move forward on the recommendations in the report.  
This report is only a starting point. DEI is always evolving, and APT must find what works and what doesn’t within the association.  
Please read! Click on the report title to read or download: DEI Report and Recommendations . This commitment is one of the most important and transformative actions our organization has taken since its inception.  
Joining a committee or communicating your thoughts and suggestions to committees is one of the most important things that you can do as a member of APT. Our work is just beginning! 
If you would like to join the DEI committee to help further this education process or have comments/suggestions, please contact Judy Shulman at  In fact, if you are interested in working towards this DEI commitment on other committees such as Education and Certification, Events, Financial and Legal, Handbook, or Outreach, please contact the Committee Chairs
