Equality and Diversity at the PSA Annual International Conference

The PSA is committed to promoting equality and diversity in all areas of its work. As such, all panels submitted to the annual international conference must endeavour to reflect the diversity of the profession and gender balance – we will be taking this into account when accepting proposals. PSA Specialist Group convenors should make active efforts to involve BME speakers as a means of reflecting the importance of this issue to the PSA E&D agenda.
