PHTA Statement of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Diversity is valuing, appreciating, and effectively utilizing the talents of people with a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and ethnicities. Individuals have many dimensions that include age, appearance, beliefs, education, ethnic origin, gender, ideas, job classification, personality, physical ability, political views, race, religion, sexual orientation, and more. By developing our skills to manage diversity, we will be able to better serve our members by exposure to the wider range of ideas and perspectives that can be found only in an organization where every individual is valued.
“This value statement solidifies PHTA’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion,” PHTA Chairman of the Board Andy Levinson said. “I encourage our members to embrace diversity and inclusion as an integral part in nurturing winning workplace cultures throughout our industry.”
