Apply for SIOP Membership/Renew/Upgrade

"Much of my research in the area of humanitarian work psychology was supported in its earliest stages by SIOP through a grant I won in 2015. So, really, I have SIOP to thank for its constant encouragement, support, and strong anchor that provided invaluable resources to conduct research in a novel and under-researched area of I-O. I am forever grateful!" Dr. Mahima Saxena
