About the Social Identity and Groups Network (SIGN)

The Social Identity and Groups Network (SIGN) was first formed in 2012 at The University of Queensland. The group has progressed significantly since then and SIGN was formally established as a School-based Centre in 2016.

We are an informal network with the aim of bringing together psychologists, researchers and other interested parties in Australia and from around the world to connect, collaborate and advance social identity research and theory, with a particular focus on issues of leadership, health and well-being.

SIGN’s members are currently involved in research in organisational, social and clinical psychology across a wide variety of issues pertaining to social life.

The Network’s strength comes from our members. If this is an area of relevance to you and your work please connect with us by getting in touch.
