Diversity and Inclusion in the UK Psychology Organisations and Divisions

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesOral presentation


Recently, there has been a resurgence of diversity and inclusion (D&I) movements within psychology in the UK. However, there haven't been any attempts thus far at gathering insight into the attitudes held by the members of the UK psychology community towards such initiatives.
To this end, the authors conducted a nation-wide survey with the purpose of identifying the levels of support towards D&I movements, the members’ view on their progression as well as what obstacles the movements may be currently facing.
The authors found that the members of the UK psychology community overwhelmingly support D&I movements. Furthermore, survey participants (N = 82) proposed curriculum diversification and reconceptualisation of expertise, as two policies likely to advance the D&I cause.
Accordingly, authors argue that a more unified movement with a clearly set agenda aimed at challenging the systems underpinning contemporary psychology may bring about improvement to the field.
