Upcoming APA-IL Diversity Events

February 13, 2018

 

The Diversity Committee met in January to kick off the year with a program planning meeting. We brainstormed educational, mentoring and networking events that promote diversity and inclusion in our profession and our in communities. We're planning to engage with schools and aligned professional organizations, with a focus on youth engagement, celebrating cultural heritage, fostering equity, and supporting professional development. Have an idea for a program, or want to get involved?
