The British Psychological Society is now a Network Partner to the Alliance for Organizational Psychology

The British Psychological Society (BPS) and the BPS Division of Occupational Psychology (DOP) are delighted to announce that the British Psychological Society has become a Network Partner in the Alliance for Organizational Psychology’s (AOP) and the “Big Tent” initiative. 

This opportunity will enable the Division of Occupational psychology to build our international collaboration with major professional associations and promote on a global scale the values of best practice, visibility, and enhancing our science which we hold in common with our partners.

The DOP aims to raise the profile of Occupational Psychology and encourage the advancement and sharing of psychological knowledge and practice. We are excited at the prospect of networking with colleagues from around the world. 

We look forward to working with the Alliance for Organizational Psychology and being part of the “Big Tent” Initiative. Through combined efforts and leveraging joint communications, we hope to facilitate understanding, develop international opportunities, and support collective activities with the AOP.

The BPS,,  is the representative body for psychologists in the United Kingdom. It is home to over 62,000 members and has 154 networks. 

One of these networks is the Division of Occupational Psychology, which represents the interests of occupational psychologists in the UK. 

The BPS and DOP provide resources and a community for members across psychology, whether practitioners, academics, or part of the wider psychological family.

As Dr Hazel McLaughlin, President of the British Psychological Society commented, “We are committed to international collaboration. We have worked informally within the Alliance for several years and are delighted to formally become a Network Partner of the Alliance for Organizational Psychology. We look forward to sharing research, knowledge, and ideas and to learning from our international partners. Together we are stronger.”
