Abstract / Description of output

Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest regarding diversity and inclusion (D&I) movements within psychology in the UK. However, there haven’t been any attempts made thus far at gathering insights into the attitudes held by the members of the UK psychology community towards such initiatives. To this end, the authors conducted a nationwide 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 re-conceptualisation of expertise, as two policies likely to advance the D&I cause. Accordingly, the authors argue that a unified movement with a clearly set agenda aimed at challenging the systems underpinning contemporary psychology may bring about further improvement to the field.
