Please join the MPA Diversity Committee and Multicultural Division for our Virtual Difficult Dialogue Series. You can expect a safe space to discuss complex topics in our communities. Please be prepared to stay for the entire meeting. We will have ground rules for discussion and, depending on the size of the groups, we may have breakout rooms. We look forward to participants listening respectfully, sharing thoughts and feelings, and growing from this process. There will be a moderator to regulate the discussion and enforce ground rules. This is not a CEU event.

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.
