AdvaMed Advance® Inclusion and Diversity Playbook

In collaboration with Deloitte Consulting, AdvaMed recently completed it’s first-ever Inclusion and Diversity member survey with 120 members participating. Using the survey results we have developed an industry activation Playbook available to all current members of AdvaMed.
