Dr. Tracey Rizzuto serves as Consortia Chair at annual psychology conference

02/03/16

Dr. Rizzuto, Associate Director in the School of Leadership & Human Resource Development (SLHRD), will serve as Consortia Chair at the 31st annual Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) conference in Anaheim, Ca., April 13 – 16, 2016. Rizzuto is Consortia Chair from 2015 to 2017.

Rizzuto will lead the Junior Faculty Consortium, the Masters Training Consortium, and the Doctoral Training Consortium. These preconference development opportunities are carefully designed to support students in master’s and doctoral programs, and junior faculty.            

The Junior Faculty Consortium addresses the concerns of junior faculty preparing for the tenure review process. It also serves as a “realistic job preview” for attendees considering an academic career.

The Masters Student Consortium provides students in the fields of Industrial-organizational (I/O) psychology, management, human resources and opportunities to build relationships and make connections with others in the field.                                                                                    

The Doctoral Student Consortium features an impressive lineup of speakers, both academics and practitioners. Only 40 upper-level students enrolled in doctoral programs can attend, providing students with a better opportunity to interact with speakers and each other.

SIOP is working to strengthen support for industrial-organizational psychology research and practice among national policy decision makers. I-O psychology is a dynamic and growing field that encompasses workplace issues at individual and organizational levels. I-O psychologists apply research that improves the well-being and performance of people and the organizations that employ them, including everything from workforce planning and leader development to job attitudes and motivation, implementing work teams, and facilitating organizational change.
