APA’s Committee on Women in Psychology Seeks Nominations for New Members
The American Psychological Association's Committee on Women in Psychology (CWP) is seeking nominations for two new members to begin terms in January 2011. The committee functions as a catalyst by interacting with and making recommendations to the various parts of the APA governing structure and the APA membership, as well as other relevant groups. The committee also collects and disseminates information concerning the status of women and develops the means by which the participation of women in roles and functions of the profession could be increased. For this term, CWP seeks a psychologist 1) actively involved in research whose research focus is on women's issues and 2) to fulfill the committee’s commitment to full diversity in representation, at least one of the slates should be filled by a person of color. The committee encourages applications from candidates with a practice, research, or policy focus on violence against women and/or international issues. Individuals either with a disability or expertise in disability issues are also encouraged to apply. Letters of nomination should clearly describe the candidate's specific qualifications relative to these criteria. Nominees to CWP must be full members of APA.
Nominations and supporting materials should be sent by September 1, 2010, to Tanya Burrwell, APA Women's Programs Office, 750 First Street, NE, Washington, DC, 20002-4242 or via e-mail. A complete call for nominations can be found on the website.
