The NCGPS Board is excited to announce the formation of a new committee, The Diversity Committee, co-chaired by Dr. Erica Anderson and Latoyia Griffin, LCSW, CGP. As an affiliate of AGPA and with a goal of inclusion as well as cohesion, we are working to incorporate information from various AGPA SIGs (Special Interest Groups) that have a focus relevant to diversity.

The goal of our committee is thus to affirm, increase sensitivity and insight, create a forum to discuss and increase knowledge and increase capacity for humility around the complexity of issues and influences relevant to diversity within our community and the community at large.

We hope to accomplish this goal through the following: programming and events that are attentive to and inclusive of the needs of individuals from diverse ethnic, racial, gender identity and non-conforming, sexual orientation, age, physical/mental ability, spiritual and religious backgrounds; increasing diverse representation and participation within the organization’s leadership and membership.

We look forward to sharing more regarding the committee in the future, as well as invite individuals to join the committee. Please feel free to contact me if you have an interest in joining the committee. My contact information is as follows:
