Plan Now to Attend the 2022 SIOP Consortia!

Debbie DiazGranados, Consortia Chair

SIOP continues to prioritize creating opportunities for networking and professional development at all career levels of our membership base. The consortia offer programming for students, early career faculty and early career practitioners. This year the master’s, doctoral, and early career faculty tracks will be offering fully virtual programs, whereas the early career practitioner track is planning an in-person program. We are excited once again to offer this programming as a place for professional development and networking with colleagues. We hope you consider becoming involved with this event. This year, for all consortia registrants who are attending SIOP in person, there will also be an in-person reception Wednesday, April 27, at 7pm PDT ; please join us! Be sure to register for the conference AND the consortia. Below are some highlights of this year’s planned events.

Calling All Master’s Students!

A master’s in I-O prepares you to join today’s workforce with a better understanding of how people work, how to measure workplace outcomes, and how to use data to make business decisions. With this in mind, the preconference consortium for master’s students is designed to be an additional tool in your new toolbox.

You’ll pick up best practices for interviewing and salary negotiation, begin to build your invaluable SIOP network through meet-and-greet exercises, and hear from established professionals across an impressive lineup of speakers. This year’s program includes presenters from MA I-O degree holders in the Fortune 100, the U.S. federal government, and the Big Five consulting firms.

Are you interested in hitting the ground running when you complete your master’s degree? The 2022 Master’s Consortium is an event specifically curated to drive the professional development and networking for I-O master’s students who plan to attend this year’s conference. We hope to see you there!

The consortium will be 100% virtual this year, occurring across 2-hour sessions on April 12, 14, 19, and 21. The consortia will also host a live happy hour for those who attend the conference in person. Please visit the SIOP website for more details. See you there!

Register for the consortia while registering for the conference. Deadline for registration is April 4. We encourage any students with questions to reach out to the consortium cochairs, Chris Rosett ( and Brandon Riggs (

Calling All Early Career Faculty! Attend SIOP’s Early Career Faculty Consortium! 

The Early Career Faculty Consortium invites current and future junior faculty in departments of psychology and management to participate in career-focused activities and sessions. The program will feature an opportunity for networking with junior faculty members from a diverse array of institutions as well as senior faculty presenters who will share their respective research and teaching paths and stories about how they have navigated their academic career. The consortium will take place virtually on April 11, 13, and 14. For those who will be attending the SIOP conference in person, there is an in-person networking event on April 27 at 7pm PDT.

The 2022 SIOP Early Career Faculty Consortium will include Teaching and Mentoring Tips and Tricks with Jose Cortina and Tayla Bauer; Funding and Data Collection Strategies with Eden King and Beth Campbell; Generating New Research with Derek Avery, Kristen Shockley, and Louis Tay; Networking for Successful and Efficient Publishing with Klodiana Lanaj and Laurie Barclay; and Q&A with journal editors. Consortia sessions will include speakers who are previous winners of the SIOP Distinguished Teaching Contributions Award, faculty who have recently gone through the tenure/promotion process, and faculty who have had 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. If you (a) are a PhD student who has successfully proposed their dissertation, (b) are seeking or have accepted an academic position, or (c) are in your first 6 years as a faculty member, then you are eligible to participate. Spots are limited; registration for this consortium is available when registering for the SIOP conference, so register early. Deadline to register is April 1st. If you have any questions, please contact Dr. Andrea Hetrick ( or Dr. Lauren Locklear ( We look forward to seeing you there!


Early Career Practitioner Consortium 

Interested in springboarding your career? 

Want to connect and get mentoring from successful I-O practitioners?

Looking to learn new I-O-related skills that will set you apart?

Want to build relationships with I-O practitioners also early in their career? 

Attend SIOP’s Early Career Practitioner Consortium (ECPC)! 

Industrial-organizational psychology is a choose-your-own-adventure-styled field offering limitless opportunities. Given the breadth of our field, early career professionals often find themselves navigating the challenging realities of work not covered in many graduate programs. Springboard your career by attending ECPC.

The Early Career Practitioners Consortium is a 1-day career development experience for up-and-coming I-O professionals who work in nonacademic settings. The experience focuses on the career needs and aspirations of professionals with up to 5 years of post-degree (PhD or terminal master’s) work experience. 

The experience provides attendees with the opportunity to learn and apply relevant I-O skills, discover the career trajectories of I-O practitioners working across various fields, uncover the early career challenges faced by accomplished I-O professionals and how they overcame them, receive guidance and support to succeed at work, and better understand their unique strengths and how to leverage to achieve career goals. 

Who Can Attend?

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. Participation in this experience is by selection and requires completing an application.

What’s the Experience Like?

  • Interact with executives like Meta’s Alexis Fink or Korn Ferry’s Scott Erker
  • Hear from experienced I-O professionals from multiple industries such as tech, government, and consulting
  • Learn more about assessments as you gain insight into your unique strengths and opportunities for improvement
  • Discuss challenges you face at work and gain clarity on career paths through mentoring circles
  • Build relationships with fellow early career practitioners as you work in groups to develop new skills

The ECPC is here to start an ongoing conversation among I-O practitioners through SIOP. It will be held on Wednesday, April 27, in a 100% in-person format. Submit your application today!
