Join the Diversity and Climate Committee for a reception to honor the Diversity Fund Graduate Travel Award winners and the Diversity Fund Undergraduate Registration Award winners. This reception brings together graduate and undergraduate students from underrepresented groups and senior social and personality psychologists whom they admire, and whose work has influenced their own intellectual development. If you identify as a member of an underrepresented group within the SPSP Convention, or your work focuses on research concerning these groups, join the DCC for drinks and light refreshments! The reception is open to all interested in attending.
