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. For the remaining Mondays of the month, the lead contributor will add to the original position piece encouraging additional discussion.  Some features we plan on incorporating are links to other blogs on our site, links to other websites, interesting graphics, interactive games and activities, user surveys, participant profiles, ability to subscribe and be notified when posts occur.

We hope you are excited by our plans, we are J.  To make sure our blog shows up, it is important for you to affiliate with the Center for Workplace Diversity Research.  That way you can be notified when a new posting is made and when comments are added.  Being affiliated will also enable you to post comments to the blog.

If you are an IO student or faculty and have a topic on which you would like to blog for a month, please let me know your topic and we will put you on the schedule.  Hopefully, we will all find this a lively and interesting forum for the exchange of IO topical ideas.
