The nominations for the BPS award for Promoting Equality of Opportunity are now open.
Each year the society shows its commitment to making equality of opportunity a reality by honouring a psychologist who has made an exceptional contribution to challenging inequality.
This may relate to gender, race, ethnic origin, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, disability or age.
The winner for 2018 was Professor Malcolm MacLachlan, director of the Assisting Living and Learning Institute at Maynooth University in Ireland.
He was recognised for his work for the social inclusion of marginalised groups, specifically those on lower incomes, cultural and ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities.
The closing date for nominations this year is the 27th of September 2019.
