Make Plans to Attend the 2023 SIOP Consortia!

SIOP Consortia Committee

SIOP is committed to supporting the careers of I-Os at all career levels of the membership base. The consortia tracks are designed to support the career growth of both master’s and doctoral students, early career faculty, and early career practitioners. With content ranging from improving reviewing skills, to navigating the job search, and improving leadership skills, the consortia offerings are sure to have a positive impact on your career trajectory. The Master’s Consortium will continue to be fully virtual and occur in live mini-sessions virtually in the weeks leading up to the conference. The Doctoral, Early Career Faculty, and Early Career Practitioner Consortia will be in-person on Wednesday, April 19 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston.

We are excited once again to the consortia as a place for professional development and networking with colleagues. We hope you consider adding the consortia to your conference registration.  Please continue reading to learn more about what each consortium is offering!

Please visit the SIOP’s Consortia webpage for more details on all sessions referenced below.


Calling All Master’s Students!

Are you interested in hitting the ground running when you complete your master’s degree? The 2023 Master’s Consortium is an event curated to enhance professional development and provide networking opportunities for I-O master’s students preparing to enter the workforce.

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, this preconference consortium for master’s students is designed to be a valuable tool in your 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 learn hints, tips, and advice for jump-starting your career from keynote presentations and discussions with established professionals. This year’s program includes presenters representing specializations in internal and external consulting, government, and a focus in assessments.

The consortium will be virtual, occurring in 2-hour sessions from 1-3pm EDT on April 4, 6, 11, and 13.

Deadline for registration is Friday, March 31. We encourage any students with questions to reach out to the consortium co-chairs, Brandon Riggs (briggs@perceptyx.com) and Beth Adams (beth.adams@ankura.com). We hope to see you there!


Calling All Early Career Faculty!

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. For the first time in 3 years, ECFC is returning to a fully in-person format with opportunities to network over coffee and lunch.

The 2023 Early Career Faculty Consortium will include Teaching Undergraduate and Graduate CoursesSurviving and Thriving Through the Promotion and Tenure Process with recently tenured panelists, and Research and Pipeline Tips & Tricks. Additionally, this year’s consortium will feature a Reviewer Bootcamp hosted by editors and associate editors of the Journal of Applied Psychology to help build reviewing skills. Panelists include outstanding teachers and scholars, including SIOP Fellows and recipients of the SIOP Distinguished Teaching Contributions Award as well as many other awards.

Because the success of the Early Career Faculty Consortium comes from interactive sessions with invited speakers, attendees will have the opportunity to prepare and submit 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 or other academic position (e.g., postdoc), then you are eligible to participate.

Note that in order to prepare for the JAP Reviewer Bootcamp, a manuscript will be sent in advance for participants to review. We look forward to seeing you there! 


Early Career Practitioner Consortium

  • Are you a high-potential I-O practitioner with less than 5 years of career experience looking to propel your career?

  • Are you interested in receiving mentoring and coaching from industry leaders? 
  • Do you want to build relationships with a cohort of other I-O practitioners at a similar career level?

Attend SIOP’s Early Career Practitioner Consortium! 

What is it?

ECPC is a 1-day development program enabling participants to enhance their agility as practitioners, clarify next career steps, and expand their network. Participation is by application. Cost to attend is $175 and includes Hogan/SHL Assessments.

Who can attend?

Capped at 35 attendees, ECPC is geared toward current I-O practitioners pursuing nonacademic careers, with no more than 5 years of work experience after their master’s degree or PhD. Participation in this experience is by selection and requires completing an application. Individuals currently pursuing I-O graduate education while working in an I-O related field are also invited to apply to attend.

  • Gain insight into your unique strengths and opportunities for improvement via Hogan and SHL assessment results
  • Learn from distinguished I-O professionals and executives like SIOP Past President Nancy Tippins
  • Receive coaching to support you in navigating work challenges and taking the next steps in your career
  • Build relationships with fellow early career practitioners as you work in groups to develop new skills
  • Better plug in to SIOP and broaden your general I-O network as you interact with other consortia attendees

Who are the speakers, coaches, and mentors?
