I/O Psych Coding Community

Ashleigh Wilson and Abhinaya Rangarajan developed a Discord R learning community called IO Psych Coders! Their goal is to create a space for IO (or related field) students, professionals, and academics that use or are interested in learning R. The community offers a space to share learning resources, have IO and People Analytics related discussions, share career advice, network and meet new people with shared interests, work on projects with fellow members to build portfolios, live-coding/tutorial sessions, and more. And the best thing about the community… it’s completely free =) Follow the link below to join the server, and please share with your friends and IO programs!

Alicia Kumar is currently a 2nd-year student in the I-O Psychology M.S program at the University of  Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC). Her background in healthcare and I-O psychology helped shape her initial interest in the field of I-O. During her time at UTC, she has worked on projects that include organizing a food pantry for students and mentoring minority students as they prepared for higher  education. Alicia also assisted with the development of inclusive teaching practices and facilitated  discussions on student diversity within her department. She is currently working as a Manpower and  Events intern for a manufacturing organization in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In her role, Alicia works on both the recruitment and DEI side to attract a diverse pool of talent and support employees during their  time at the manufacturing organization. She is also a member of the PRIDE Employee Resource Group and the African-Americans Building Leadership Excellence (ABLE) Employee Resource Group, where she works to foster an inclusive work environment for employees from different backgrounds.  

Her work and research interests include racial and gender equity initiatives, occupational health and  safety, and mitigating organizational burnout. 

Post-graduation, Alicia aims to work in the consulting field and guide various organizations in their  efforts to implement DEI initiatives.
