Lynda Zugec, Managing Director of The Workforce Consultants, based in Toronto, is the chair-elect of the Canadian Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (CSIOP).
CSIOP is affiliated with the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) and its membership, like SIOP, is comprised of academics, practitioners and students.
Zugec, like many other members of CSIOP, is a member of SIOP, and one of her primary goals is to further develop I-O in Canada.
"I envision CSIOP as a Canadian association that provides unmatched value to it's I-O practitioner and academic membership via activities, resources, and tools that encourage networking, professional development, and collaboration across the I-O community,” she said.
She will promote increased involvement in CSIOP initiatives. “I strongly believe in the need to strengthen ties and build bridges with like-minded associations worldwide and assist in the exchange and dissemination of our knowledge and scientifically-based best practices globally,” she said
She will succeed SIOP member Silvia Bonaccio, an associate professor of management at the University of Ottawa, in the chair position.
