Advancing diversity and inclusion in the profession is a key priority of the association and the APSA Strategic Plan. The APSA Diversity and Inclusion Programs department has complied resources for advancing and promoting diversity and inclusion for researchers, faculty, and departments in the areas of recruitment, hiring, and retention, and mitigating implicit bias. The 2018 APSA Diversity and Inclusion Report presents information about demographics and diversity and inclusion initiatives from across the programs, services, and reports generated by the association. It provides a one-stop report of data and initiatives related to diversity and inclusion at APSA and can be used as a resource to foster meaningful discussion of diversity and inclusion across the association.
