My experience at SIOP's Leading Edge Consortium (LEC) on October 19-20 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel was phenomenal. At the conference, I have the opportunity to hear applied psychologists and senior executives talk about identifying, developing, and retaining high-potential talent (HiPos).

How SIOP Members Help the Military and Veterans

What comes to mind when you think of psychologists working with members of the military or veterans?  Clinicians working with them on their mental health needs?  America’s Departments of Defense (DoD) and Veterans Affairs(VA) are the largest employers of psychologists in the world. According to the American Psychological Association, 7% of its membership - nearly 8,000 people -works for the DoD, and the VA counts 5,000 psychologists on its payroll. Although the majority are clinicians, a number of industrial and organizational psychologists (I-Os) work for the two agencies in a number of capacities to create programs, improve governmental organizations, and provide support to improve the lives of veterans.
