2015 National Multicultural Conference and Summit
January 15-16, 2015
The National Multicultural Conference and Summit is a biennial conference hosted by APA Div. 17 (Society of Counseling Psychology), Div. 35 (Society for the Psychology of Women), Div. 44 (Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Issues) and Div. 45 (Society for the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues). The 2015 National Multicultural Conference and Summit will be an exciting and innovative summit rooted in the values of our founders. As multicultural psychologists, we embrace diversity and reflect on the intersections of oppression and privilege. NMCS 2015 welcomes educators, policy makers, researchers and clinicians to reflect on what we have accomplished and consider where we need to go. In the spirit of Sankofa, we will look back to move forward.
The summit will provide a welcoming space to explore the question, "relative to science, service, training and policy, what has the multicultural psychology movement not yet accomplished?" Programming, including keynotes and "difficult dialogues," is designed to provide a safe space to explore this question and seek answers.
Join us in 2015 to reflect within and reach out, to remove the borders that limit us and celebrate psychology without borders.
