SPR Diversity Celebration Reception

All attendees are welcome!

You are invited to a reception celebrating the rich diversity of perspectives that can shape our science. The goals of the SPR Diversity Committee are to monitor, highlight, and promote participation of individuals from underrepresented backgrounds in SPR and in psychophysiological research. This inaugural reception offers opportunities for networking and community-building, and for SPR members to share their support and encouragement. Interest in a new diversity-focused mentoring program will also be assessed during the event. We hope you can attend!
