One of the initiatives of Talya Bauer’s new SIOP presidency is to include I-O psychology into Intro Psych Textbooks.  Currently, very few Intro Psych textbooks include the topic, which contributes to a general lack of awareness of our field by many.  Therefore, the Getting I-O into Intro Textbooks (GIT SIOP) Task Force was created.  In an effort to keep the SIOP community updated on the task force’s progress, the following blog has been created: http://my.siop.org/GIT-Blog
