Three Consortia Offered at SIOP Conference


by SIOP Administrative Office

The Consortia Committee, chaired by Dr. Tracey Rizzuto, is offering three consortia at the Hilton Anaheim on the day before the start of SIOP 2016.   They include the 31st Annual Lee Hakel Doctoral Consortium, chaired by Dr. Lily Cushenbery, co-chaired by Dr. Joshua Fairchild; the 10th Annual Master’s Consortium, organized by Amanda Woller of Community Health Systems and Adam Hillard from Walmart; and the 11th Annual Junior Faculty Consortium, chaired by Dr. Debbie DiazGranados, with co-chair Dr. Katina Sawyer.

The registration deadline for the 31st Annual Lee Hakel Consortium is March 1, 2016. Designed for upper level graduate students in I-O Psychology or OB/HR doctoral programs, this year’s consortium features both an academic and a practitioner track.

Speakers with academic and practitioner expertise will offer their unique perspectives on the opportunities and challenges faced by today’s I-O psychologists at the program held on Wednesday, April 13 in Anaheim. More information on the program schedule and panelists can be found here.

Attendance is predicated on nomination by the student’s academic department and attendance is limited to 40 students in each track. More information on the nomination and registration process, including the student registration form can be found here.

Departments are encouraged to nominate one primary and one wait-listed student as soon as possible. Once notified of their nomination by the organizing committee, students must complete their registration and pay the $70 registration fee no later than March 1. 
The Master’s Consortium is designed for second year master's students in I-O psychology programs and will include a lineup of speakers who graduated from master’s programs and have excelled as managers and consultants. The format offers students unique opportunities to build relationships and make connections with others in the field. Find more about the Master’s Consortium here.

The Junior Faculty Consortium is a developmental program for junior faculty in I-O or HR/OB programs. Historically, this consortium focuses on the needs of SIOP’s faculty members in teaching and research-intensive environments, and addresses the concerns of junior faculty preparing for the tenure review process. It also serves as a “realistic job preview” for SIOP members considering an academic career. Editorial Roundtables, one-on-one and small-group feedback sessions are new features for this year’s Junior Faculty Consortium.  Find more about the JFC here.
