The three shortlisted campaign proposals for the 2022 Senate Policy Campaign have been announced.

The three shortlisted proposals are:
Proposal 10: Tackling social class and class-based inequalities
Psychology of Women and Inequalities Section; Community Psychology Section; Social Psychology Section.
Proposal 11: Emerging Stronger: Living Well, Protecting our Planet

All members will then have the chance to vote on their preferred proposal on Thursday 4 November, with the winner announced via the BPS website and social media channels on Friday 5 November. Society staff will then work closely with members to deliver the policy campaign for 2022.
Genevieve Ileris, BPS interim head of policy who has led on the organisation of the Senate campaign process, said:
“We had 10 fantastic eligible submissions and I’d like to thank all members for their input and enthusiasm for the Senate policy campaign so far.
“We have really enjoyed working with members to support the development of their proposals and videos for social media, and thank you to all members who took the time to vote. We look forward to the November Senate meeting and finding out the successful campaign we’ll be taking forward.”
