Newly appointed AWP newsletter editor announced

Dr. Kathy McCloskey, 2011 Vice-Chair of the Committee on Women in Psychology and member of the 2010-2011 Leadership Institute for Women in Psychology (LIWP) is appointed Newsletter Editor for AWP

“Kathy McCloskey, Vice-Chair of the Committee for Women in Psychology (CWP), was recently appointed as the Newsletter Editor for the Association for Women in Psychology (AWP).  The AWP is an incorporated, not-for-profit scientific and educational feminist organization devoted to reevaluating and reformulating the role that psychology and the mental health field generally play within women's lives.  It seeks to act responsibly and sensitively with regard to women by challenging the unquestioned assumptions, research traditions, theoretical commitments, clinical and professional practices, and institutional and societal structures that limit the understanding, treatment, professional attainment, and responsible self-determination of women and men, or that contribute to unwelcome divisions between women based on race, ethnicity, age, social class, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. 

One of AWP's proudest achievements is our continuing, always evolving, reliance on feminist process.  The Implementation Collective (our governing board) works as a cooperative unit, has voluntary members, and open meetings.  The Collective and AWP overall includes lesbian, bisexual, and straight women, white women and women of color, academic and nonacademic women, and graduate students.  The current Implementation Collective members include the following: Staffer/Regional Coordinator (Susan Mathews), Treasurer (Sue Morrow), AWP Spokesperson (Audrey Ervin), Membership Coordinator (Julie Shulman), Women of Color Coordinator (Radhika Sehgal) , Recorder/Correspondent (Tiffany O’Shaughnessy), Newsletter Editor (Kathy McCloskey) and the Implementation Collective Coordinator (CoCo) (Nina Nabors). The AWP Newsletter is published three times a year, with submission deadlines of January 15, April 15, and September 15.  For past Newsletter editions, please visit the AWP page.
