About Us

The mission of the International Society for Occupational Science is to facilitate connections among people and groups who share a commitment to occupation-focused research, education, and practices; to encourage engagement with occupational science among people who are new to the discipline; and to create opportunities for inclusive and diverse dialogues about the role(s) occupational science can play in meeting societal needs

By 2027, the International Society for Occupational Science will be seen as a bridge builder within the international occupational science network; have established mechanisms for advancing the vitality and visibility of occupational science; and be a champion for occupational science’s commitments to inclusion, diversity, and social transformation
