Social Class Caucus

Social class refers to hierarchical distinctions between individuals or groups, characterized by differential access to necessary resources. As a critical element impacting the individuals’ lives, it merits increased attention from mental health professionals. In an effort to bring social class and related topics to the fore in AWP, an interest group on social class was convened during the 2006 and 2007 annual conferences, participants of which decided to form the Social Class Caucus.

Size Acceptance Caucus

The Size Acceptance Caucus promotes research, clinical services, and activism promoting size acceptance and ending size discrimination. It recognizes the principles of the 1973 Fat Liberation Manifesto, including the rights of people of all

sizes to human respect and recognition and equal access to employment, education, public facilities, and health services, recognizing the intersection of sizediscrimination with other facets of human diversity, and the exploitative nature of the weight-loss and beauty industries.

Caucus on Mothering Issues

The Caucus on Mothering Issues (CMI) was created at the 2005 annual AWP Conference after online discussions of feminist mothering and the ways in which psychology historically and currently has not served mothers well. The issues facing mothers are rarely addressed at professional conferences, within the discipline of psychology, or within the literature.

Early Career Professionals’ Caucus

Early career professionals (clinicians, postdocs, junior faculty, researchers, others) may have fewer sources of mentorship than graduate students and fewer informal support networks than those who are more established. The Early Career Caucus (ECC) serves feminist early career professionals by promoting their needs within AWP. The ECC provides opportunities for early career professionals to network with one another, share educational resources and gain access to peer and senior mentoring. The ECC will also strive to encourage junior colleagues to become more involved in AWP.

Researchers' Caucus:

We’re a group of AWP members who identify as researchers. Many of us work in academia, but other members work in private or government settings. We are a diverse group in various stages of our careers; students, early career, mid-career, and senior professionals. Both qualitative and quantitative researchers are represented in this group. Our membership is open to anyone who is interested in feminist research and maintaining a strong research presence within AWP.   See also the Unger-Frieze Prize information under "Awards"

Caucus for Bisexuality and Sexual Diversity

The Caucus for Bisexuality and Sexual Diversity (CBSD) is committed to promoting dialogue within AWP about the range of expressions of sexual orientation, gender identity and sexual diversity. In particular, the CBSD seeks to raise awareness of aspects of identity that do not fit into traditional dichotomous conceptualizations. The CBSD supports conference programming on sexual diversity, particularly as it intersects with issues of race, class, and ability status as well as spirituality. The caucus also sponsors the annual Coming Out Ceremony, where participants are invited to come out about any aspect of their identity for which they would like community witness and support.

Women of Color Caucus

The AWP-Women of Color Caucus (AWP-WOCC) is for AWP members who are, or identify as, WOC. It is especially focused on the interactions of gender with race, ethnicity, social class, immigration status, and ableness from a feminist perspective. The caucus was organized in 1989 to increase the visibility of the needs and concerns of Women of Color in AWP. The goal of the WOCC is to ensure that the voices of Women of Color have a voice in AWP’s growth and its mission. It is a resource for AWP through its consciousness/awareness-raising of current topics, research, teaching strategies, and practice issues regarding Women of Color for interested researchers and practitioners of psychology of all races/ethnicities and genders. The Caucus welcomes all Women of Color.
