SSO:USA Mission

The Society for the Study of Occupation (SSO: USA) is a dynamic research society dedicated to advancing occupational science and leveraging its findings for the betterment of humanity. Our mission is to foster the growth and dissemination of knowledge in the field, driving meaningful insights into the diverse ways in which individuals engage in occupations across the lifespan. By promoting interdisciplinary collaboration and supporting rigorous research, we aim to unlock the transformative power of occupation in promoting health, well-being, and social justice.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

SSO:USA is committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within our discipline and communities. Since our 2020 Virtual Event, "Racial Equity in Occupational Science: A Virtual Conversation for Strategy-Building," we have been discussing ideas and developing action plans to address societal injustices. Our most recent directive includes the creation of an Ad-Hoc Committee on Equity and Inclusion. To learn more about our action plans related to DEI and this Ad-Hoc Committee's tasks, please follow the link below:
