Event Description
The Role of Psychology in Advancing Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
March 10th, 2023 
10:00 AM- 1:15 PM Pacific Time

During this presentation we will discuss the structure and context needed to create systemic change and promote collective accountability – leading with the principle that we are all responsible for supporting and contributing to a culture that fully promotes equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). We will outline how the work of psychologists align with the EDI Framework and how APA’s Executive EDI Office can support these efforts. Members of WSPA will consider strategies for incorporating the current EDI principles into their work. Participants will engage in critical discussions concerning the infusion of EDI efforts internally, across the field of psychology, and within society.

Goal Statement
To empower attendees to infuse principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion into their work to affect transformational change within the field of psychology, as well as in broader society
