Promoting I-O Psychology to the Community at Large

Clemente Diaz & Jen Wessel, 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. 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, please visit

To make advocating I-O psychology to students (high school and college) easier, the SIOP Bridge Builders Committee has developed two PowerPoint presentations (An Introduction to I-O Psych and I-O Psych as a Career). Presentations can be accessed at https://www.siop.org/About-SIOP/Advocacy/Building-Bridges. Additionally, a curated list of free educator and student resources can be found at https://linktr.ee/SIOP_BB.

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

Serve as a Future Institute workshop facilitator (e.g., job search process, the work environment) and/or career mentor to high school and undergraduate students.

  • About Future Institute: Future Institute was formed to implement a programmatic plan to serve low-income, first-generation, high school graduates from 12 partner high schools throughout the Midwest states. We work to imbue these graduates with the social and life skills they need to advance their education and obtain successful and meaningful careers in their chosen fields.
