In its fifth year, the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP)’s Diversity in Sport Regional Conference is a student-driven event targeting traditionally underrepresented undergraduate and graduate students (e.g. students of colour, LGBTIQ students, students with disabilities) and early career professionals interested in careers in applied sport, exercise performance and psychology. Through a variety of discussions, presentations, and networking opportunities, the conference provides a space for open dialogue around diversity and social justice issues in applied sport and exercise settings. The event is held annually at a historically black college and university (HBCU) or minority and Hispanic serving institution (MSIs and HSIs).

The 2020 conference is being held at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in partnership with Winston-Salem State University.

Call for abstracts is open!

We invite proposals for symposia, workshops, lectures, panels, and posters broadly focused on diversity, inclusion, and social justice within applied sport and exercise psychology settings. Since this conference is interdisciplinary in nature and informed by sport and exercise psychology sport history, sport sociology, and sport management, we will also consider proposals related to organisational studies, gender studies, cultural studies, body studies, and physical culture/physical cultural studies.
