Questions for the authors to consider:

  • How do you describe your ‘culture’ or your ‘intersectionality of identities’?
  • Based on your culture or cultural identities, how did you experience psychology as a discipline or field? (e.g., educational and training experiences, practice experiences, etc.) What does that experience tell you about the field of psychology?
  • Tell us what space psychology needs to create to help the voices and experiences of people with your culture or cultural identities strive? To phrase it differently, if you have a wish list, what would you like to see psychology as a field do? What changes should psychology engage in to make people with your cultural background feel more at home and empowered?
  • What other important messages and/or lessons learned do you have for the discipline of psychology, to help it grow and advance going forward?
