Amber Stark / Tuesday, August 3, 2021 / Categories: Member News, Items of Interest, SIOP Source SIOP Fellowship Nominations Now Open In an effort to recognize unusual and outstanding contributions to I-O psychology, SIOP invites members to nominate colleagues for SIOP Fellowship. Fellowship recognizes outstanding contributions of SIOP members and is one of the highest honors a member can receive. Fellowship is open to individuals who work in any I-O topic area or employment setting. Nominees must be current SIOP Members at the time of nomination, have been Members for the previous 2 years, and have accumulated 10 years of professional membership in SIOP; their contributions must have had meaningful, sustained, and unusual impact on the field of industrial and organizational psychology; and they must be nominated by another SIOP Member or Fellow. Self-nomination is not permitted. “Consistent with SIOP Strategic Goal 2, which is to build a diverse, inclusive, and agile SIOP, the Fellowship Committee seeks to promote fellowship to under-represented groups, including practitioners, racial and ethnic minorities, and international members,” said Stephanie Payne, chair of the Fellowship Committee. “Ideally, all SIOP Members and Fellows should consider who in their networks has made significant contributions to the field and is deserving of this honor, and take the time to nominate someone who is eligible.” The nomination process opened Aug. 1 and will close Monday, November 1. The Fellowship Committee reviews all nominations and makes recommendations to the Executive Board. New Fellows will be announced in conjunction with the 2022 SIOP Annual Conference. SIOP recognizes that outstanding contributions to the profession may come from all areas of I-O psychology and represent the range of practice, research, teaching, administration, and service in the variety of settings in which industrial-organizational psychologists work. Fellow status is not simply based on adding up how many criteria are represented in a nominee’s curriculum vitae. Similarly, recognition as a SIOP Fellow is not simply a matter of competency nor is it recognition of a steady and active career in I-O. Rather, Fellow status specifically recognizes unusual and outstanding contributions that have an important impact on I-O psychology. Each nominee is considered individually; there is no quota or percentage of Fellows. The Fellowship Committee takes very seriously its obligation to make sure that outstanding SIOP members are recognized, balanced by the realization that Fellowship is a significant honor, highly valued by all members of SIOP. Complete requirements and procedures, as well as a helpful timetable and examples of contributions, can be found online.
