Consistent with the American Psychological Association’s Guidelines on Multicultural Education, Training, Research, Practice, and Organizational Change for Psychologists (APA, 2003), the mission of the Division 40 Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee (EMA) is to promote the integration of diverse populations into the fabric of neuropsychological practice, research, teaching, and training in order to provide neuropsychologists with the knowledge and resources to better understand and serve an increasingly diverse U.S. population, and to reduce historic inequities present in the field of neuropsychology.
The EMA committee achieves its goal through various forums, including:
• Providing information and education on culturally relevant topics in neuropsychology
• Supporting mentoring program/database to encourage the career development of
neuropsychologists of diverse backgrounds.
• A listserve for all who are interested in crosscultural/multicultural issues in neuropsychology.
• Hosting scheduled mentoring and other events at the APA and INS conventions.
