Blacks in I/O Psychology

I/O Community Call Series: Addressing Systematic Issues in Law Enforcement Workplaces Part 1

  • Monday, June 29, 2020
  • 5:30 PM (MST)
  • Virtual Event



I/O psychologists and practitioners, are uniquely equipped to solve problems in the workplace. We are employed by the largest companies across the world to validate selection systems, build trainings, motivate employees, manage performance, and build change management strategies. We realize that law enforcement agencies are, too, organizations that can benefit from the work of I/Os. With the current (and long standing) climate of unrest surrounding the killing of innocent black people, I/Os must act. 

Join us as we partner with law enforcement professionals, our members and allies to brainstorm actionable strategies addressing systemic racism, bias, prejudice and discrimination within law enforcement agencies.
