Dear Fellow FPA Members,
The results of the Doodle Poll are tallied and the response was tremendous.
The next meeting of the White Ally Development Affinity Group will be on Wednesday, August 12th at 6PM. We will attempt to rotate the group between evening and lunch time meetings as the need dictates.
We look forward to seeing you next month.
Thanks for your interest,
Mary Ann Clark
White Ally Development Group
ZOOM SIGN IN
Ally Development Group is a designated space for psychologists and graduate students who identify as White.
Goals: To create a space for difficult dialogues about anti-Blackness, racism, White privilege, and White supremacy.
The primary goal of this group is to explore and develop stronger White allyship skills. Those skills are enhanced by an openness to challenge personal biases and willingness to talk about them and find solutions to better support our colleagues,
friends, students, and patients of color. As we move forward, there will be open discussions and more structured discussions about allyship for White psychologists and graduate students. This group will provide support for identifying ways
to show up, amplify, and give power to voices of color.
Vision: As the group evolves, we envision a process that allows for tremendous personal and professional growth. We will tackle challenging topics and stay relevant to what
is going on in the world around us. Our initial meetings may focus more on the role of ally development around supporting our Black colleagues and students.
