"I am very grateful to have been able to attend the Academy of Management conference the summer before my PhD program started, thanks to the support of the PhD Project. Having exposure to the most current work on a wide breadth of research topics, and new ways of approaching social and business issues, has greatly benefited me as an incoming student who had not solidified research interests. This year I reviewed several papers and symposia as part of the peer review and selection process. Offering suggestions to others only strengthens our ability to further develop and critique our own work. I am thrilled to return this summer to the conference. This time, with a group collaborators and advisors, we will be presenting our own research!"
