ACA Statement on Diversity
Diversity encompasses, without limitation, race, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion, nationality, age, disability, socioeconomic status, and marital or parental status.
A key component in addressing diversity and inclusion is cultural agility. The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) acknowledges cultural agility as a foundation for competent healthcare delivery to improve patient outcomes and engage in public health initiatives. ACA defines cultural agility as having enhanced skills and knowledge of the needs of a multicultural society and requiring a commitment to inclusion that begins with broader concepts of diversity.
