Achieving greater diversity, equity, and inclusion begins with understanding why change is needed in the first place: That's the idea behind a new learning opportunity from APTA that helps you better identify the factors that work against DEI and take real-world steps to make a difference.

The APTA DEI Bundle is a series of three recorded presentations from Diana Lautenberger, MA, co-lead of the American Medical College's Gender Equity Lab and faculty member of the Association of American Medical Colleges’ leadership development seminar program. Using an approach that relies heavily on self-reflection, Lautenberger addresses identity, privilege, bias, and allyship, and challenges viewers to evaluate how those elements apply to their personal lives. The offering is part of the APTA Learning Center.

The two-hour sessions are being rolled out sequentially, with part one — "Unconscious Bias in the Health Professions" — now available. Part two, "Power, Privilege, and Microaggressions," will be posted in the coming weeks, with the third installment, "Responding to Microaggressions Through Allyship" arriving in December.

Viewers who complete all three sessions and score at least 70% on each session assessment will earn 0.6 CEUs — six contact hours — and a certificate of completion. Varying discounts are available for APTA PT and PTA members, student members, and postprofessional student members.
