Promoting I-O Psychology to the Community-at-Large

Submitted by the Bridge Builders Subcommittee

Advocating for the science and practice of industrial-organizational psychology to students and educators is critical for raising awareness of the value of I-O psychology. The SIOP Bridge Builders Subcommittee would like to highlight two resources designed to help members in this effort.

  • SIOP’s Advocacy Registry provides a centralized source for information about SIOP professionals who have experience with and interest in contributing to advocacy efforts. For more information and to join, click here.
  • To make advocating I-O psychology to students (high school and college) easier, the Bridge Builders Subcommittee has developed two PowerPoint presentations (An Introduction to I-O Psych and I-O Psych as a Career). Presentations can be accessed on the Building Bridges webpage. In addition, a curated list of free educator and student resources can be found here.

If you would like to be more proactive in promoting I-O psychology, below is one more opportunity in which you can engage.
