As part of APTA's efforts to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in the physical therapy profession, we want to better understand what is working well and what is not across our community, including schools, clinics, hospital systems, and the association. This will help make our profession an inclusive space where all physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and students can thrive.

One way to do this is through climate scanning, which is the ongoing tracking of trends in an organization's internal and external environment that attribute to its successes and failures. The results can help you form goals and strategies that further our progress in upholding the values of cultural humility.  

We've collated a list of climate scanning tools to help you assess the DEI culture of your individual spaces and identify areas of improvement. This list provided is not all inclusive, but it can give you a good start.
