The purpose of this working group is to support the work by current African and African American Christian ethicists and to create a systematic process for recruiting future Ph.D. students and for identifying and fostering development of African and African American Ph.D. students in ethics. In particular, the working group will: (1) support the professional development, research, and publications of African and African American ethicists, and convene concurrent sessions and focused interest group discussions at the Annual SCE meeting related to African and African American approaches to ethics. (2) The working group will seek ways to nurture, cultivate, mentor, and support African American Ph. D. students in ethics, towards the successful completion of their degrees and first job placement.

The Asian and Asian American Working Group was formed in 2007 to promote the scholarly interests, professional development, and representation of Asian and Asian American ethicists in the SCE. We seek to do this by creating an open and inclusive environment for discussion about ethics, fostering collegial and mentoring relationships among its members, and contributing positively to three different "publics" -- various Asian/Asian Asian communities, the SCE, and the broader field of Christian ethics. Membership is open to anyone who is interested in the stated purposes of the Asian and Asian American Working Group.

Members of the Latino/a Working Group engage in conversations about the past, present and future of Latino/a Christian ethics in the academy, the church, and society.  They address multiple approaches to identify the needs of Latino communities in each of those sectors along with the strategies necessary to meet them as scholars doing teología en conjunto.  With that spirit of service in mind, the Group seeks to facilitate a greater presence of Latinos and Latinas in the guild.
