Members in the Media

Mariah Clawson and Jen Baker

Awareness of I-O psychology has been on the rise thanks to articles written and featuring our SIOP members. Many of these articles and other mentions are in reference to the coronavirus pandemic. These are member media mentions found from March 1, 2020 through June 30, 2020.

We scan the media on a regular basis but sometimes articles fall through our net. If we’ve missed your or a colleague’s media mention, please send them to us! We push them on our social media and share them in this column, which you can use to find potential collaborators, spark ideas for research, and keep up with your fellow I-O practitioners.
