Welcome to the TNOTA Diversity & Inclusion Webpage!

 

Our Mission: We exist to amplify diversity in the field of occupational therapy, promote awareness about equality, and advocate for a more inclusive profession regarding scholarship and practice in the state of Tennessee.

Our Vision: A future in which the Tennessee occupational therapy profession is an equitable, inclusive, and diverse representation of service for our community.

 


 

Attention: Calling ALL Tennessee OT/COTA/Students - We need YOUR help!
The Diversity and Inclusion Committee has launched a state-wide needs assessment. The purpose of this survey is to assess the specific needs of our state as it relates to addressing issues with diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). This will inform how TNOTA will better serve you in addressing DEI initiatives. It will take approximately 4-5 minutes to complete the survey.
