APA Division 35

Society for the Psychology of women











The theme for the Summit is “From International to Transnational: Transforming the Psychology of Women.” The goal of the Summit is to foster new directions in the psychology of women through exploration and awareness of international perspectives. The Summit’s programming will include speakers, work groups, and a poster session social hour.


What makes this Summit unique is its action-oriented approach—Work groups comprised of women in different stages in their careers will be formed to develop specific products (e.g., a book,  special journal issue, CE program, undergraduate and graduate curriculum, policy development, best practices guide, etc.) and long-term goals that promote the transformation of the psychology of women. The Summit will provide an opportunity for feminist psychologists in different stages of their careers across the globe to share and learn from each other.


The Summit will address the conference theme through four different tracks: undergraduate and graduate curriculum, practice, policy, and research. Work Groups will meet all day on Tuesday, August 4th, 2015 and in the morning on Wednesday, August 5th, 2015 immediately before the APA Convention in Toronto, Canada.
