MANAGERIAL AND ORGANIZATIONAL
PDW Chair: Naomi B. Rothman, Lehigh University; firstname.lastname@example.org
Managerial and Organizational Cognition (MOC) Division invites you to submit
proposals for the pre-conference professional development workshops (PDW) to be
held at the 2019 Academy of Management meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. PDW
sessions are scheduled from 8AM to 8PM on both Friday (August 9th)
and Saturday (August 10th).
about it! The
MOC Division is devoted to understanding individual and collective cognitive
processes in organizational contexts, including, but not restricted to, the
nature and role of mental representations, judgment and decision making, social
identity processes, attribution processes, individual differences,
non-conscious forms of cognitions, sense making, categorization, organizational
learning and memory, culture, communities of practice, cognitive institutionalism,
and the influence of emotions on these cognitive processes.
about it! PDW
sessions present an opportunity for Academy members to interact in new and
innovative ways. We’re looking to sponsor PDW sessions in many formats
(workshops, panel discussions, tutorials, town hall meetings, breakout
sessions, debates, round tables, research incubators), but we’re especially
interested in proposals that are innovative, integrative, developmental, and
inclusive. We encourage submissions that experiment with new formats and/or
shorter, bursts of interaction and those that offer unique experiences for the
participants. In crafting your proposals, remember that MOC encourages PDW’s
that build bridges spanning the macro, meso, and/or micro levels of analysis.
As in previous years, wherever possible, we encourage you to create proposals
that may be of relevance to more than one division. We also encourage you to
think about, but not feel constricted by this year’s AOM theme “Understanding
the Inclusive Organization” when developing your PDW proposals. You can
learn more about the conference at the Academy of Management annual meeting

be sure to follow the Academy of Management's PDW Guidelines for Submissions. In addition, for tips
