International Theme Committee (ITC) invites submissions for Professional
Development Workshops (PDWs) at the 2019 Annual Meeting in Boston,
Massachusetts (USA). We encourage members of all Academy divisions and interest
groups to submit PDW proposals that explore international dimensions of management
theory and practice, integrate the theme of “Understanding the Inclusive
Organization”, and advance the international character of the Academy. If your
PDW proposal meets these criteria, we are open to exploring official ITC
sponsorship. We are particularly interested in sponsoring interactive and
innovative PDW proposals that support the ITC’s primary role of helping the
Academy become more international and achieving these critical goals:
Academy members become exposed to, or provide exposure for, scholarship being
conducted outside the USA.
the membership committee in its charge to expand internationally and to
integrate international members into the Academy.
members to understand and apply different cultural perspectives and ideas
within the Academy.
are a platform for colleagues to share knowledge and expertise and foster the
development of workshop participants. Coordinated by the Academy's many
divisions, interest groups, and theme committees, PDW sessions are different
from regular academy sessions in that they can have a longer time frame and can
take many forms (e.g., workshops, interactive symposia, tutorials, breakout
sessions, debates, case studies, round tables, research incubators, etc.). The
minimum amount of time for a PDW is 1.5 hours. Although a PDW can only be
submitted to one division, we do have a process for determining co-sponsorship
after PDW submissions, so we encourage partnerships with other divisions, where
Academy, and particularly the ITC, strongly encourage PDWs that create a
meeting place between practitioners and academics, between members of different
divisions, and scholarly dialogue that are inclusive of scholars and traditions
based outside of the USA.
The deadline for submissions is Tuesday,
January 15, 2019 at 5:00PM EST (NY Time).
submissions must be made online via the AOM
submission system. We
are open to general inquiries and/or discussion of potential submission and fit
to the ITC PDW Chair, Dr.
Jamie L. Gloor, at aomITCpdw@gmail.com by December 21, 2018.
