Laissez Le Bon Temps Rouler! Attend SIOP’s Virtual Consortia Events!

SIOP Consortia Committee

Calling All Early Career Faculty! Early Career Practitioners! Doctoral Students! Master’s Students!

Attend SIOP’s Early Career Faculty Consortium

The Early Career Faculty Consortium (ECFC) invites current and future early career faculty in departments of psychology and management to participate in career-focused activities and sessions. The program will feature an opportunity for networking with early career faculty members from a diverse array of institutions as well as senior faculty presenters who will share their respective research paths and stories about how they navigated their academic career. 

The 2021 Early Career Faculty Consortium will focus on mentoring and the art of successful teaching, using startup funds and data-collection strategies, generating and evaluating new research ideas, and surviving and thriving through the tenure-and-promotion process. This year will also feature a virtual happy hour with fellow attendees. These sessions will include previous winners of the SIOP Distinguished Teaching Contributions Award, faculty who have recently gone through the tenure-and-promotion process, and faculty who have successful mentoring relationships. 

Because the success of the Early Career Faculty Consortium comes from interactive sessions with invited speakers, attendees are encouraged to prepare questions prior to attending. Many attendees choose to attend the consortium multiple times to capitalize on new programming and information presented in subsequent years.

Who Can Attend?

If you (a) are a PhD student who has successfully proposed their dissertation, (b) are seeking an academic position for the fall 2021 term, or (c) have accepted an academic position offer for fall 2021, then you are eligible to participate.

What’s the Experience Like?

The discussions will be 100% virtual and will be conducted prior to the beginning of the 2021 SIOP Conference.

Spots are limited; registration for this consortium is available when registering for the SIOP conference, so register early. We look forward to seeing you there!

Early career practitioners often find themselves navigating challenging realities of the working world not covered in many graduate programs, even more so when navigating early careers virtually. It’s common to be uncertain about your career early on. The Early Career Practitioner Consortium (ECPC) will share insights for identifying and leveraging your strengths or areas of development in your current work and will connect you with accomplished I-O practitioners who can share their wisdom and guidance to propel your career forward.

This 1-day career development experience is for current I-O practitioners pursuing nonacademic careers, with no more than 5 years of work experience after their MA or PhD.

  • Keynote presentation on creating a career plan that places your well-being at the center.

  • Receive guidance on common challenges faced when starting a career in the virtual working world.

  • Interact with seasoned I-O practitioners in mentoring and panel conversations.

  • Explore career trajectories through networking and peer coaching in small groups.

The ECPC is here to start an ongoing conversation among I-O practitioners through the SIOP conference.  It will be held on Friday, April 9, in a 100% virtual format. Submit your application today!
