Ethics Committee Awards

The Ethics Committee is currently only responsible for the provision of a single award.

Award for Promoting Equality of Opportunity

This award recognises a person whose work as a psychologist (teacher, researcher or practitioner) has made an exceptional and sustained contribution to challenging social inequalities in the UK in relation to gender, race, ethnic origin, nationality, religion, religion, sexual orientation, disability or age.

The recipient is invited to deliver an Award lecture at our Annual Conference and to accept a commemorative certificate. 

The candidate must show evidence of some or all of the following:

  • The individual’s personal commitment to equality issues;
  • A significant and sustained impact of the candidate’s contributions to psychological teaching, research or practice (inclusive of published works and influence on professional practice); 
  • A significant and sustained impact of the candidate’s work on other professionals/service providers;
  • A significant and sustained impact of the candidate’s work directly for people from marginalised and oppressed social groups.

Guidance for assessors and a nomination form can be obtained from the Directorate Administrative Assistant

In the absence of any nominations of sufficient merit no award will be given.
