Why now? Why APA President?
APA is at an inflection point—a critical moment of transformation. We need to listen and learn from each other so we can build a real community of psychologists, supported by the strength of our diversity, far beyond our current fragmentation. Our society needs the resources and solutions that psychology can provide. As a unified, dedicated organization, we can lead and contribute to resolution of key national and global issues such as healthcare, poverty, violence, and immigration.We can create change together at a new, enhanced level of impact-- one robust discipline, united in our mission as a scientifically grounded organization, committed to the public good, supporting members to create a positive future for all. I want to help create APA’s organizational future.
Sandra L. Shullman, Ph.D. is running for APA President. She is a partner with the Executive Development Group and her work includes international leadership development, organizational change, diversity initiatives, conflict resolution, and executive education.
Learn. Lead. Change.
