The Committee on
Diversity began as an ad-hoc committee in 2006 and was incorporated into the
AAPA bylaws as a standing committee in 2011. The committee’s mission
The committee serves as the umbrella organization for several specific interest and activity groups. These groups are self-organizing and their constituents identify a member to act as part of the advisory committee of the Committee on Diversity. To date these groups include those related to issues concerning: women scholars; LGBTQ scholars; international and indigenous scholars; underrepresented minority scholars; URM funding; AAPA membership survey; undergraduate research symposium. Volunteers and ideas for new groups welcome!
In pursuit of our mission, the committee sponsors other workshops and mixers at the AAPA annual meetings and holds its yearly organizational meeting during the AAPA meetings as well. All AAPA members are welcome at these events. For information, please see the yearly AAPA program volume, email one of us and join the listserv (see below).
