Associate Professor Julie Wayne was named a Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) Fellow. Society Fellows are distinguished industrial and organizational psychologists who have made an unusual and outstanding contribution to the field.
She joins Sean Hannah, Tylee Wilson Chair in business ethics and professor of management, and Derek Avery, professor and David C. Darnell Presidential Chair in Principled Leadership, as the third SIOP Fellow from the Wake Forest University School of Business.
“I am truly humbled to have been elected Fellow by this esteemed group,” said Wayne. “The fact that there are three SIOP Fellows at Wake Forest is remarkable and reflects our faculty’s dedication to the teacher-scholar model.”
Avery also serves as Chair of the SIOP Fellowship Committee and had the honor of presenting the award to Wayne.
“Of the nearly 6,000 SIOP members worldwide, only 418 are Fellows,” Avery said. “Selection requires nomination, endorsement by current fellows, recommendation by the Fellowship Committee and, ultimately, approval by the Executive Board. As the current chair of the Fellowship Committee, I was absolutely delighted to see Julie recognized for her outstanding contributions and it was truly an honor and a privilege to relay to her the news that she was among the 20 new Fellows to be named at the 2019 annual conference.”
SIOP, established in 1982, and its members are dedicated to applying psychology to people in the workplace. They work to understand and measure human behavior in order to improve employees’ satisfaction in their work, employers’ ability to hire and promote the best, and to generally make the workplace better for all who work there.
