Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Resources

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Matters

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Committee works to evaluate and ensure diversity, equity, and inclusion perspectives and efforts are incorporated into all aspects of APMA. With that in mind, the committee is providing these resources for the benefit of all APMA members.

Implicit Bias Webinar

APMA DEI Consultant Sharonda Simmons presented the webinar "Implicit Bias" on March 2. The webinar was held at the behest of the 2022 APMA House of Delegates, which requested APMA provide implicit bias training for all delegates and alternates at the 2023 House of Delegates. Due to the condensed schedule of this year's meeting, the webinar was held prior to the event. Note: Due to a technological issue, recording of the webinar started a few minutes into the content. In addition to watching this webinar, review the resources sheet for more information.
