At its meeting last November, the APA board of officers authorized me to appoint a task force focusing on issues of diversity and inclusiveness in the profession. I am pleased to announce the membership of that task force:

  • Elizabeth Anderson, University of Michigan (chair)
  • Lawrence Blum, University of Massachusetts Boston
  • Peggy DesAutels, University of Dayton
  • A. J. Kreider, Miami-Dade College
  • Susana Nuccetelli, St. Cloud State University
  • Mickaella Perina, University of Massachusetts Boston
  • Ronald Sundstrom, University of San Francisco
  • Kenneth Taylor, Stanford University
  • Robin Zheng, University of Michigan (graduate student)

The Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion aims to identify problems faced by the discipline in advancing inclusion and equitable treatment of historically underrepresented groups at all levels of philosophical pursuit, and to suggest policies that can effectively address these problems.

The task force will also look in particular at the APA’s seven diversity committees and make recommendations to support their continued and improved functioning and efficacy.

I am confident that this task force will be of great benefit to the association in its longstanding commitment to supporting and fostering increased diversity within our profession, and the board looks forward to the task force’s recommendations.

All best,

Michael Bratman
