Thepurpose of the Joint APA Ethics, Division 44, and APAGS Student Travel Award is to (a) promote greater participation of LGBT graduate students of color in the 2015 National Multicultural Conference and Summit (multiculturalsummit.org), and (b) encourage exploration of ethical issues that may arise in research, teaching, consultation, and clinical work with LGBT people of color through a post-summit essay. The APA Ethics Office, Ethics Committee, Division 44, and APAGS acknowledge that LGBT students of color frequently experience increased demands on time and resources as a result of managing multiple identities within professional organizations.
