2022 SIOP Annual Conference



Welcome SIOP members!

As we all plan for the 2022 SIOP Annual Conference, I want to share with you a pre-conference event that I hold dear to my heart—that is, the SIOP Consortia events. It is important to me because as a Doctoral student, I attended the Doctoral Consortia and it provided valuable information that helped me through the dissertation phase of graduate school and even on my job search. I also attended the Early Career Faculty Consortia as a newly minted faculty member. It too provided me with an opportunity to network with others in similar roles and places in their career. The information and professional development I received during these two events were impactful.

As the Chair of the Consortia Committee, I’m excited about the programs that have been developed for SIOP 2022. The chairs for each track have worked hard to develop a program that you can benefit from. This year, three of the tracks of the consortia (Doctoral, Masters, and Early Career Faculty) will be completely virtual. The Early Career Practitioner consortia has planned an in person program to be held in Seattle on April 27th. We believe that the consortia provides content that appeals to members at all career levels. I look forward to seeing you at the virtual consortia events and for those who can make it in person, we will celebrate the consortia in Seattle at a reception on Wednesday April 27th. See you in a zoom room and/or in Seattle to celebrate the SIOP Consortia!

Doctoral Consortium 


Join us for the SIOP 2022 Doctoral Consortium! You can expect a high-quality and interactive consortium experience. Come engage with diverse panels of I-O professionals as they offer unique perspectives on the opportunities and challenges faced by both I-O practitioners and academics today. The consortium will take place virtually during the two weeks before the SIOP conference in April 2022 and will culminate in an in-person networking event in Seattle. 

Each program can nominate up to two student representatives. Students must have passed comprehensive exams (or your program’s equivalent) to be eligible to attend.
