SIOP Foundation Initiatives

These are newly developed funds that will, with the proper support, become Named Funds of the Foundation.

In order to meet the goal, a fund must raise $50,000 in 5 years, with a minimum goal of $5,000 in the first 12 months of the campaign, or all monies raised revert to the Advancement Fund.

Please contact the Foundation if you are interested in learning more about the opportunity to create a fund in support of industrial-organizational psychology. 

Incubator Fund

These are funds in honor/memory of the life’s work of an important SIOP Member.

Emerging Issues Fund

The new fund on the horizon is the Adverse Impact Reduction Research Initiative and Action (AIRRIA) Fund, designed to investigate causes and solutions to adverse impact in testing and selection.  Adverse impact (AI) has been a recurring problem for decades, and although some findings have not only helped us to understand the problem and create modest solutions, we are still without a viable theory, consistent processes or programs to reduce or eliminate AI, or a body of research that informs the laws that govern employment practices.

The objective of the fund is to encourage scholars to engage in programmatic research that blends I-O psychology, public policy, and the law in efforts to further inform us on the underlying factors that lead to AI and methods for its reduction.

 Contact Rick Jacobs for more information.
