Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access

IDEA

The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access Committee (“IDEA” Committee, formerly called Minority Task Force) serves to keep Academy leadership informed of best practices as they relate to IDEA in Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy activities and events, including but not limited to education, research, and conferences. The goal of the IDEA Committee is to make the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy organization inclusive, welcoming and accessible to all through educational and promotional channels and increase IDEA knowledge and diversity in the profession and volunteer leadership.

Initiative | Diversity Gallery

There is a lack of visual representation of minority populations in physical therapy continuing education courses in higher learning, public awareness campaigns, patient education brochures and in digital and print promotional/educational content. The IDEA committee strives to diversify its digital library of images and videos to increase visibility of minority populations presented in educational and promotional materials developed by the Academy of Pelvic Health Physical Therapy for its continuing education programs, patient-education initiatives and its members.

Help build our diversity gallery!

Requirements:

  • Professional camera or high-quality phone camera
  • Bright, natural lighting
  • We will occasionally post specific requests for the type of photos/videos we are seeking
