The Third Annual SIOP Master’s Student Consortium

Pauline Velez
Allstate Insurance Company

The Third Annual Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology Master’s Student Consortium will be from 1:00 to 7:00 on Wednesday, April 1, 2009 at the Sheraton New Orleans.

The consortium is designed for students who are enrolled in master’s programs in I-O psychology and OB/HRM. The program includes an impressive lineup of speakers who graduated from master’s programs and have excelled as managers and consultants for some of the nation’s most successful organizations. 

Speakers will meet with small groups of students and discuss issues related to finding, keeping, and getting promoted in I-O-related jobs.  Participants will attend two workshops, a question and answer roundtable, and a social hour.  This year’s speakers include:

Earl Brown, President of Industrial Psychologists, Inc., graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Kristy Busija, Organizational Development, Westinghouse, graduate of the University of Baltimore

Brandon Corbin, HR Director, Target Corporation, graduate of Angelo State University

Susan Walker, Senior HRD Advisor, FedEx Freight, graduate of Western Kentucky University

In November, each master’s program coordinator will receive consortium registration materials.  Program coordinators will be asked to nominate two students to participate in the consortium.  To provide students with a better opportunity to interact with speakers and each other, enrollment in the consortium is limited to a total of 60 students. 

Students will be admitted to the consortium on a first-come, first-served basis.
The fee for the consortium is $50 per participant. This fee includes program materials and refreshments.  If you have any questions about the consortium, please contact Pauline Velez at Pauline.velez@allstate.com or at 650-833-6242.
