The SIOP Advocacy Academy is a 9-month, fully virtual program aimed at providing I-O professionals and students with the knowledge and skills necessary for them to advocate for research funding, evidence-based policy, and other critical SIOP priorities. The Advocacy Academy will feature prerecorded webinars on topics such as the legislative process and engaging with congressional officials, and monthly virtual discussion sessions to provide interactive opportunities for Q&A. The Advocacy Academy culminates in small group meetings with congressional staff, where participants will have the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned and advocate on issues important to the field of I-O psychology. Cohort members will coordinate with regionally based groups to schedule meetings, prepare talking points, and send follow-up information. The team from Lewis-Burke Associates will assist with providing staffer contact information and identifying SIOP priorities to discuss in the meetings. The Advocacy Academy is free of charge and has an average time commitment of 1 to 2 hours per month. SIOP Associates, Members, Fellows, and Students are eligible to participate. Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until August 4, 2023. The application form can be found on the SIOP government relations webpage.
