The British Psychological Society has today published a declaration of our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, a document that is intended to guide us in all that we do.
This is an important reiteration and extension of our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, recognising the need to ensure that we will actively promote this culture within our discipline.
The Society will now develop a plan to deliver the objectives of the declaration, which will be embedded at all levels within our organisation, whilst we will regularly reflect on and review our progress.
Nicola Gale, our President Elect, 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."
