Walter Reichman, Ed.D has been named a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP).
Dr. Reichman was granted Fellow status by the SIOP Executive Board at its most recent meeting.
The profession of industrial and organizational psychology addresses the full range of human interactions in organizational settings. Members of the profession may be researchers, teachers, practitioners or administrators. They work in several settings including in business, government, consulting, and academia. SIOP Fellows may be recognized for outstanding contributions to the profession in any of these areas.
A pioneer in the area of pro-social I-O, Dr. Walter Reichman has an impressive history of research, teaching and advocacy. His early research on the impact of alcoholism and addiction in the workplace led to his advocacy of Employee Assistance Programs. He is the International Association of Applied Psychology representative to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and an honorary member of the SIOP United Nations Team.
His numerous chapters and articles on serving empowerment, not power, are required reading across a range of evidence-based training programs globally. He has mentored, co-presented with, and generally inspired young people to redefine I-O to include pro-social issues, all without losing sight of the foundations of the discipline and profession.
SIOP has been recognizing the outstanding contributions of members by granting Fellow status throughout its history. To be considered for SIOP Fellow status, a member must be nominated by another member, and endorsed by at least three more SIOP Fellows. A member who has been active in the Society for ten years or more is eligible based on meaningful, sustained and unusual impact on the field.
The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) is an international professional organization with an annual membership of more than 10,000 industrial-organizational (I-O) psychologists.
