Message from your Chair
Last year’s conference was an enjoyable and uplifting experience and I want to encourage you all to attend this year’s conference on Building Bridges - Visibility, Equality, Inclusion, Diversity which will add to the positive energy from previous conferences. The theme of our conference inspires me to quote Martin Luther King Jnr. He spoke of “the hope of a secure and liveable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood”. I have remarked before on the diversity of members that attended last year which gave me a Black Psychologist a sense of hopefulness about how DCoP continues to shape itself in positive ways despite the many political, social justice, and inequalities there are globally. When you choose to attend the 2018 conference you are sure to experience the rich conversations, nourishing and stimulating presentations/keynotes, but overall there is a sense of us being together making this event a success.
