September 30, 2016 — The committee has issued a statement regarding a recent keynote address at the Midwest meetings of the Society for Christian Philosophers.
May 19, 2016 — The committee will now be known as the Committee on LGBTQ People in the Profession. The APA board of officers approved this change and associated revisions to the committee charge on the request of the committee.
The committee is charged with assessing and reporting on the status of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and genderqueer (LGBTQ) people in the profession. Its main responsibilities are to identify unfair or discriminatory practices affecting LGBTQ philosophers in their professional work and to apprise the board and members of the association of ways in which such practices may be rectified; to inform LGBTQ philosophers concerning means of overcoming discrimination that they may encounter in the profession; and to make reports and recommendations to the board concerning ways in which full and meaningful equality of opportunity can be provided to all individuals who seek to study, teach, or conduct research in philosophy. The committee is also concerned with teaching and research. It seeks to facilitate an understanding of, and investigation into, issues of sexuality, diversity in affectional preference or orientation, sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, and the range of positions represented in theories about LGBTQ people.
The committee also publishes the Newsletter on LGBTQ Issues in Philosophy, the editor of which serves in an ex officio capacity on the committee.
