Alliant Sponsors National Multicultural Conference & Summit 2013
Alliant International University is a sponsor of the National Multicultural Conference & Summit 2013 (NMCS), which brings together psychologists and other professionals from across the United States.
The conference will be held at the Royal Sonesta in Houston, TX, January 17-18, 2013. Alliant’s own Dr. Debra Kawahara, associate professor in the California School of Professional Psychology, San Diego campus, is lead coordinator of the conference, which includes many Alliant faculty and student presentations.
The NMCS is hosted every two years by four divisions of the American Psychological Association (APA), Division 17 (Society of Counseling Psychology), Division 35 (Society for the Psychology of Women), Division 44 (Society for the Psychological Study of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues) and Division 45 (Society for the Psychological Study of Ethnic Minority Issues).
NMCS’ vision is to convene scientists, practitioners, scholars and students, in psychology and related fields to inform and inspire multicultural theory, research, and practice. Multiculturalism is envisioned as inclusive of experiences related to age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, indigenous heritage, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, social class and socioeconomic status and other social identities. This year’s conference focuses on the theme, Transforming Multicultural Psychology: Engagement, Renewal and Action across Generations.
