APA Florida is conducting this survey to determine perceptions of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in the Florida planning community and recommended strategies to enhance EDI.  All responses to this survey are welcomed, including from persons who are not APA Florida members and/or who no longer practice planning.

This survey uses the following definitions from the APA Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Vision, Mission, and Strategy (2019):
  • Equity is “just and fair inclusion into a society in which all can participate, prosper, and reach their full potential.”
  • Diversity is “an inclusive concept that encompasses, but not is not limited to, race, ethnicity, class, gender, age, sexuality, ability, educational attainment, spiritual beliefs, creed, culture, tribal affiliation, nationality, immigration status, political beliefs, and veteran status. With greater diversity, we can be more creative, effective, and just, and bring more varied perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, talents, and interests to the practice of planning and to the communities we serve.”
  • Inclusion is “an environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully; are valued for their distinctive skills, experiences, and perspectives; have equal access to resources and opportunities; and can contribute fully to the organization’s success.”
APA Florida will only use survey responses for strategic planning, program design, event planning, and related initiatives, such as understanding trends in survey responses over time. Information in all responses will be kept confidential, and APA Florida is not collecting any information that would personally identify individual respondents and will not contact anyone regarding their response. Only the APA Florida Communications Manager, the EDI Committee Co-Chairs, and an EDI Committee survey analyst will have access to individual survey responses, which will be confidential. APA Florida committees and staff will review compilations of information collected in survey responses for the purposes noted above.

Participation in this survey is entirely voluntary. If you choose to participate in this survey and there are questions you would rather not answer or do not feel comfortable answering, please opt out of any question that causes concern by selecting the “prefer not to answer” option or skipping the question. APA Florida will take note of all survey responses, regardless of the number of questions answered. Thank you for your participation.
