            Promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Award Committee

            STP invites applications for three committee members to select the annual recipient of the new Promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Award.

            This award will recognize instructors who are dedicated to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the teaching of psychology. This award recognizes “diversity” as inclusive of perspectives and experiences that are not traditionally highlighted in psychology curricula, in a reflection of broader societal power structures. These perspectives and experiences may derive from minoritized identities that include, but are not limited to: sexual orientation, gender identity, (dis)ability status, social class, race/ethnicity, religion, and immigration status. The goal of this award is to recognize instructors of psychology who promote social justice, broadly construed, through their teaching via a variety of educational and academic activities. These activities may include:

            1. An overall teaching approach and/or specific teaching practices that amplify diverse perspectives and foster an equitable learning environment.

            2. Community-based educational initiatives that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion outside of the classroom.

            3. Conference presentations and/or invited/public talks focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the teaching of psychology.

            4. Mentorship that is responsive to the needs of minoritized students, trainees, and colleagues.

            5. Publications (whether academic or popular) focused on inclusive and equitable pedagogy.

            All current members of STP are eligible to serve on the selection committee for this award. Expertise in diversity, equity, and inclusion preferred; previous experience serving on an award selection committee not required. STP encourages applications from colleagues who are from underrepresented groups and have diverse backgrounds and experiences.

            Two inaugural committee members will serve for a two-year-term, and one member will serve for a three-year term. To apply, please send a brief (1-2 page) letter stating your interest and experience related to the position and a current CV. In the letter, please specify your preference (if any) for a two- or three-year term. The applications are due by October 15, 2020 and should be sent to: Leslie Berntsen, Inaugural Promoting DEI Award Chair, at dei-award@teachpsych.org.
