Cynthia DeVita-Cochrane on Being a Business Resiliency Counselor
In our frustrating and never-ending quest to explain what I-O psychology is, we could always say, at least, "No, we don't do counseling." Today's guest is taking that away from us, too. Cynthia DeVita-Cochrane joins us from the frontier of I-O psychology as she shares her experience as a business resiliency counselor. Along the way, we learn why mediators don't have mantras, how consultants are responding to the pandemic, why entrepreneurs can't count on Google for good business advice, and the best-kept secret in small business.

Macy Cheeks & Shavonne Holman on Blacks in I/O
What's it like to be Black in I-O psychology? When Shavonne Holman and Macy Cheeks graduated from Howard University—the country's most prestigious historically black university—and entered graduate programs in I-O psych, they weren't prepared for how alone and isolated they'd feel. Over dinner and drinks, they talked about forming a LinkedIn group for Blacks in I/O...and that's when things got really interesting. In this episode, you'll hear the story of how that LinkedIn group became Blacks in I/O, a professional networking & learning association for Black industrial-organizational psychologists, practitioners, students and allies. You'll also learn how _you _ can pitch in to help Blacks in I/O change the field. Check out the episode page for more links to Blacks in I/O resources a full transcript of this episode.

Sherif al-Qallawi on Egyptian Work Culture
I-O psychology is WEIRD: Most of our research is conducted with samples of Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, and Democratic societies. How confident can we be that our evidence generalizes to non-WEIRD workplaces around the world? To gain some insight on that question, I asked our friend Sherif al-Qallawi (Twitter, LinkedIn) to talk about the Egyptian workplace and how it differs from workplaces in North American and Western Europe. Check out the episode page for a full transcript.
