New Bloggers Join the I-O In Action Blog

We feature HOT TOPICS and invite HOTTER DISCUSSIONS on topics changing monthly among affiliates of the Center for Workplace Diversity Research

Here are three additions to our team of emerging PhDs in Industrial and Organizational Psychology who post to our IO CWDR Blog.

L to Right in the Photograph (excluding Dr. Mike Vandermark, facilitator for the DOC 760R class where the picture was taken) are, Melissa Szydlek, Sara Pemble, and Julie Schillim.

Our Plan:  The first Monday of each month a new contributor will introduce the Topic of the Month by posting a stimulating, informative, and challenging topic posting some initial comments.  During the week, anyone with interest in the topic is invited to respond and/or contribute.  The lead contributor of the month will monitor posts and respond as appropriate.
