Master’s Consortium:

Today Master’s Student, Tomorrow I-O Practitioner


As your students are beginning to plan for the 2020 conference, they should consider joining us for the Master’s Consortium (MC), a developmental program specifically designed for second year master’s students! The program will include an impressive lineup of speakers, offering their unique perspectives on the opportunities and challenges faced by I-O practitioners today. They will also focus on the key developmental experiences that can lay the groundwork for a successful career in industrial and organizational psychology. Although second year master’s students who will be on the job hunt soon will likely benefit the most from the MC, all master’s students are welcome.

Mentoring Matters for STEMM Diversity

Diversity matters. Diverse viewpoints and diverse backgrounds are important to successfully solving complex challenges. According to the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, “The quality, vigor, and innovation of the U.S. science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) enterprise depend on increasing the diversity of individuals, research teams, and leadership in STEMM fields.”

But the report, “The Science of Effective Mentorship in STEMM,” issued at the end of a 22-month study says, “Talent is equally distributed across all sociocultural groups; access and opportunity are not. This is particularly true in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) professions1 that are expected to grow as a percent of the total workforce in the coming decades. The underrepresentation of marginalized groups in STEMM contexts is pervasive.”

Three SIOP members, Christiane Spitzmueller, professor of Industrial Organizational Psychology at the University of Houston, Tammy Allen, distinguished university professor of Psychology at University of South Florida, and Lillian T. Eby, professor of Industrial-Organizational Psychology at the University of Georgia made significant research and theoretical contributions to the report. Dr. Allen and Dr. Spitzmueller served on the Committee on Effective Mentoring in STEMM. Dr. Eby presented at one of the committee workshops. Find a prepress version of the report online here.

The report argues that effective mentoring is a “significant component of the complex solutions required” to comprehensively address the underrepresentation of major segments of the population in STEMM fields.

When a manuscript is submitted to Academy of Management Journal (AMJ), editors and reviewers frequently ask: Does the study define a new conversation (theory/lens/paradigm) or divert an existing conversation into a meaningfully different area? Conversations about management and organizations are regularly taking place outside the field of management and its journals as well. Those outside of our field and academic halls may conceptualize organizations and management differently, emphasize organizational and managerial characteristics that are relevant to them, and focus on problems that have not received attention in our studies.

The objective of this Special Research Forum (SRF) is to encourage AMJ authors to join conversations on management and organizations that are taking place in societies around the world. Specifically, we would like to publish a collection of outstanding empirical studies that (1) contribute to the solutions of contemporary managerial and organizational problems and (2) introduce topics to AMJ readers that are seen as important outside of our field but are understudied by management scholars. Examples of such topics include the effects of caste systems on employment, discrimination, socioeconomic status and class in organizations, sexual harassment, diversity and inclusion in the workplace, organizational values, labor strikes, artificial intelligence, global health inequities, the movement of workforce across borders, bribery, political influence, private politics, transnational organizations, interconnected economic systems, and the organizational implications of national conflicts, wars, and international trade agreements and sanctions.
