Hundreds of clients, including federal agencies, corporations, not-for-profits, financial institutions, health care providers, and insurance carriers benefit fromAAP Advisory's specialized expertise.

DIVERSITY SWOT is AAP Advisory's best practices solution for assertive diversity management and the development of a comprehensive affirmative action framework. Diversity initiatives must adequately include the recruitment of minorities, women, veterans and disabled individuals. Given the rapidly changing demographics of the U.S. workforce and the expanding globalization of US businesses, “diversity” in the workplace is a phenomenon of great strategic and operational consequence for federal contractors. In spite of widespread research, protracted theories and self-appointed authorities on the subject, many organizations continue to struggle with building measurably diverse and inclusive work environments. For many organizations, diversity is a complex concept that still engenders a great deal of uncertainty and frustration.


We realize that the way to achieve greatness within an organization is through diversity in recruitment and inclusion of the most talented individuals through that process.

Analyze and Identify are AAP Advisory's methodologies on diversity consulting. We believe it is crucial for an organization to take a long look at the cold hard numbers to establish just how diverse it really is. AAP Advisory has proven tactics to get your most precise metrics allowing you to better evaluate your organization's selection, training, recruitment and retention of qualified, diverse candidates.


Pushing it to the limit with a complete diversity and affirmative action plan overhaul! We start with a comprehensive Diversity SWOT Analysis and quantify your big picture when it comes to your selection, training, recruitment and referral initiatives. The AAP Advisory team will outline areas of underutilization while highlighting your strengths and accomplishments in the diversity arena; helping your HR department to foster a more positive environment for all employees through recruitment, mentoring and training programs. The AAP Advisory Team revolutionizes training, recruitment and referral initiatives through AAPLink, a patent pending, web based application, that will provide immediate access to local and national action programs and minority enterprises to facilitate the recruitment of minorities, women, veterans and disabled individuals. To that end, we have developed a comprehensive strategy for conducting workplace assessments from our many years of EEO, AAP and diversity management experience.

Our DiversitySWOT will streamline the assessment process meeting the following objectives:

  • Analysis of current selection, diversity, training and recruitment initiatives
  • Evaluate areas of underutilization using AAPLink, our automated, web-based application
