About This Workshop

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 the Iowa Psychological Association 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.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:
  1. Describe three ways APA has contributed to social hierarchies and inequities.
  2. Identify two examples of strategies to work to decolonize psychological science
  3. List three strategies for utilizing to achieve equity, diversity, and inclusion excellence principles in your work.
