Respect and empathy in the work place have always been important, but the value of raising awareness about the impact of discriminatory practices and sexual harassment in today’s world is imperative if we want to attract and retain a talented, diverse and productive workforce. The work that began at the Ossur Women’s Leadership Conference last summer and the follow up from the O&P Alliance are an exciting beginning. At NAAOP, we are committed to helping our members and our industry understand the impact of these issues and identify pathways for improvement.
