Sessions

≪Organizer Abstract≫
The United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals focus on poverty eradication. Poverty is broadly defined as exclusion, e.g., from access to health care, social participation, and decent work. This symposium focuses on enabling opportunity for inclusion in each of these domains. From work psychology we hear how dual salaries paid to international versus local workers in lower-income settings creates "economic apartheid" and reduced wellbeing, whilst living wages can boost capacity and sustainable livelihood. From global health, management support and supervision have been key elements in retaining and motivating health workers. In community development, NGO services that respect principles of justice, freedom from dominance and respect for identity can enhance sustainable development. From macropsychology we learn how policy development and revision is promoting great social inclusion. Eradicating poverties of opportunity requires term "new diplomacies" (Saner & Yiu, 2012). Discussion will focus on ways forward for applied psychology to foster diversity in harmony.
