The British Psychological Society (BPS) has published a declaration of its commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, a document that is intended to guide them in all that they do and actively promote this culture within its discipline.
The Society will now develop a plan to deliver the objectives of the declaration, which will be embedded at all levels within the organization, and will regularly reflect on and review progress of this endeavour.
President Elect Nicola Gale commented, “Promoting equality, diversity and inclusion is central to our work as psychologists, whether we are generating and promulgating scientific knowledge, working in professional practice and advocating for top quality services, in education and training, or indeed in the course of our work with policy makers and the wider public. I am committed to working with colleagues to foster this in all that we do.”
