Harriett Copher Haynes AUCCCD Diversity Leadership Mentoring Award

At the most recent Association of University and College Counseling Center Directors (AUCCCD) conference it was announced that the AUCCCD Diversity Leadership Mentoring Award is now going to be the Harriett Copher Haynes AUCCCD Diversity Leadership Mentoring Award in honor of her contributions to AUCCCD’s ongoing diversity efforts. The Mentoring Award offers mentoring support and funding to attend and present at one AUCCCD conference to a counseling center staff member with at least five years of experience who represents diversity in such areas as race/ethnicity, physical ability or sexual orientation and has had experience advancing a cultural agenda.

Diversity Statement

The Minnesota Psychological Association actively encourages the participation of all psychologists regardless of age, creed, race, ethnic background, gender, socio-economic status, region of residence, physical or mental status, political beliefs, religious or spiritual affiliation, and sexual or affectional orientation.Although we are an organization of individuals from diverse cultures and backgrounds, the Minnesota Psychological Association also recognizes our core unifying identities as Psychologists who practice in America. We also recognize that we may hold unintentional attitudes and beliefs that influence our perceptions of and interactions with others. Within this context of unity and self-exploration, we are committed to increasing our sensitivity to all aspects of diversity as well as our knowledge and appreciation of the unique qualities of different cultures and backgrounds.We aspire to becoming alert to aspects of diversity, previously unseen or unacknowledged in our culture. In this spirit, we are committed to collaborating with multicultural groups to combat racism and other forms of prejudice as we seek to promote diversity in our society. To this end, we are dedicated to increasing our multicultural competencies and effectiveness as educators, researchers, administrators, policy makers, and practitioners.
