The Award for Promoting Equality of Opportunity recognises work as a psychologist that has made an exceptional and sustained contribution to challenging social inequalities in relation to gender, race, ethnic origin, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, disability or age.

Professor MacLachlan said: “This is a wonderful recognition of the work of the ALL Institute at Maynooth University, and of our many global partners. I am delighted to accept it on our collective behalf. It recognises that psychology can meaningfully and practically impact at the level of policy and systems, with government, civil society and the United Nations. In seeking to promote equality of opportunity at a macro level, we are contributing to applying psychology as a population science.”
