SPSSI’s first  Diversity Pre-conference will provide a space for members to share with, learn from, and find community with other SPSSI members from underrepresented groups. Ultimately, this pre-conference aims to help SPSSI’s diverse members develop professional skills within academia, policy/applied areas, and in the overlap of the two.

The first session will include breakfast, talks from diverse speakers on issues relevant and of interest to SPSSI members, and a panel session. The second session will include lunch and activities to foster in-depth conversations about diversity-related experiences and diversity in practice through networking and building connections with other SPSSI members.

The registration fee includes the cost of breakfast, lunch, and materials. Ten $150 funding awards will be available for students and early career members to help those in more need attend this preconference session.

If interested in applying for a funding award, please submit this short form by May 15th: Funding Award Submission Form.
