Diversity

Diversity Chair: currently open
Our Diversity representatives and committee are dedicated to promoting diversity issues in NPA and  Nevada. This includes welcoming psychologists from diverse backgrounds as well as promoting culturally sensitive services to the community. NPA is working to develop a Diversity Mission Statement, includes scientific and evidence-based information about working with diverse populations in our CE trainings, and strongly supports efforts to reach out to individuals, different genders, ethnicities, ages, backgrounds, sexual orientations, cultures and abilities.
