The APWA Diversity Committee is appointed by the president and is comprised of members of the association. The Committee advances diversity issues throughout the association, placing value on all individuals and the different perspectives of those individuals, and promoting the process for all to feel included as part of the whole. For the Committee's deliberations, the word "diversity" includes race, gender, creed, age, lifestyle, national origin, disability, personality, educational background and income level.
Members of the Committee participate in monthly conference calls and an annual face-to-face meeting, typically at PWX (formerly known as the International Public Works Congress & Exposition).
