Annual SIOPSA Conference, 2021 (21- 23 July).
Who would be the protagonist if a story about the world of work was to be written in 2021? Would it be technology, Covid19, artificial intelligence, big data, capitalism, bureaucracies or the humanity of people “affectionately” referred to as human capital? The 2021 SIOPSA conference seeks to re-introduce humanity and the people that form part of the workforce as the lead characters in the world of work. This is on the backdrop of the various elements that have taken precedence and overshadowed what Deloitte (2021) refers to as an organisation that is “distinctly human at the core”.
As a trusted and loyal partner, SIOPSA offers ISCP members a special 10% discount to attend the conference. Please find attached the conference brochure that you can distribute to your members.

The British Psychological Society (BPS), AGM, 26 July 2021, 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm. This online AGM is free to attend and open to BPS members only. Registration is required. There is a resolution that the BPS Special Group in Coaching Psychology (SGCP) now becomes the Division of Coaching Psychology. As this will need a vote, BPS members who are coaching psychologists and those with an interest in this field may wish to attend. We thank our colleagues in the SGCP who brought this vote to our attention. We wish them every success.
