Alliance for Organizational Psychology


CSIOP Joins the Alliance for Organizational Psychology!


CSIOP has formally joined the Alliance for Organizational Psychology (AOP). The Alliance, initiated by then SIOP President, past CSIOP Chair, and ongoing CSIOP member Gary Latham, was established in 2009 by the Work and Organizational Psychology Division of the International Association for Applied Psychology (Division 1), the European Association for Work and Organizational Psychology (EAWOP), and the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP). The aim of the Alliance is to form an international alliance that would increase the visibility of I-O psychology in the public and private sectors, and be mutually beneficial to each society.


The Alliance does not seek to duplicate functions that are already done by other existing I-O psychology Associations, but instead intends to enhance, extend and facilitate exchanges among Associations and their members.


The specific purposes of the Alliance are as follows:

  •  Influence policies and practices related to the quality of work life and the effectiveness of individuals and organizations,

  • Advocate internationally for the science and practice of organizational, industrial and work psychology,

  • Enhance communication and collaboration among its member societies and the individuals who are members of these societies, and

  • To do any and all acts and things necessary and expedient to accomplish any of the foregoing.
