Demonstrating Our Commitment to Anti-Racism Through Programming and Events
Diversity and inclusiveness are core values of SPSP and we are committed to becoming an anti-racist organization. We are working to address equity and anti-racism in our Society through systemic, progressive, and long-lasting change. To learn more about how SPSP is working to put anti-racism, equity, and inclusiveness at the center of our programming and events, read our full statement.
The Society for Personality and Social Psychology’s Annual Convention is the premier international event for more than 3500 social and personality psychologists. Attendees from academia, non-profit, government, and private sectors present and discuss research, network and collaborate on projects, and pursue professional development while advancing science and pedagogy in the field.
San Francisco/Virtual, February 16 - 19, 2022
SPSP will offer attendees two ways to participate in the 2022 convention: an in-person experience in San Francisco and a virtual experience. Planning is still in development with our main goal to create a meeting that is safe, inclusive, and accessible for the entire field while providing opportunities to share research, build community and collaborate. Adapting the meeting format will offer opportunities for us to innovate, question the status quo, and enable flexibility for participants to choose a method that works best for their circumstances.
This smaller event allows for connections, discussions, and potential collaborations around a specific theme that crosses the sub-disciplines of social and personality psychology.
