Breaking Barriers: Paving New Paths in I/O Psychology
2024 Inaugural Conference & Gala
Thursday, February 22nd - Friday, February 23rd, 2024
As an Industrial Organizational (I/O) Psychologist, your role in the workplace is more vital than ever to breaking barriers. Your expertise and insights into employee well-being and organizational behavior can significantly impact a company's success. However, we understand that navigating this field as a Black professional can come with its unique challenges as well.
BIOP’s mission is to uplift Black voices and experiences within the I/O psychology industry. We’ve created this conference to help support this mission. Throughout the conference, you'll have the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals and experts in the field to exchange knowledge and learn from each other.
Our two-day conference will feature inspiring keynote speakers, thought-provoking panel discussions, and engaging workshops from a diverse array of speakers. You'll leave the conference equipped with actionable strategies to implement in your work and empowered to advocate for yourself and the value you bring to the workplace.
In addition to bringing together students, academics, and practitioners in the field of I/O psychology of all backgrounds, this conference is aimed to highlight the achievements of Black psychologists and their allies in the field, and to foster an inclusive environment where attendees can ask questions and share their knowledge, ideas, and perspectives. It will conclude with a gala to honor and celebrate the contributions of our community, including members, allies, volunteers, and donors who have been instrumental in the field of I/O psychology. This celebration will recognize their efforts and achievements in advancing the field and shaping its future.
