The 32nd Annual Conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology is almost upon us, with many of us convening in the Sunshine State of Florida the last weekend of April 2017. The SIOP LGBT Committee would like to give all those interested in LGBT issues in I-O psychology (whether you identify as LGBT or as an ally) a preview of the exciting events happening at this year's SIOP conference. Therefore, in this issue our column will provide a list of all LGBT related programming that you take part in at SIOP this year. This year has a lot of content to choose from within our committee’s sphere of interest. All events below include their listed time, location, event format, and title. Also, this year will be the first year that we will have PRIDE badge tags available at the hospitality desk for you to be able to show your support at the conference. We hope you all have a wonderful and productive conference!
