Annual Meeting Dates: Friday, 9 August through Tuesday, 13 August 2024
We are seeking proposals for the HR Division Professional Development Workshop (PDW) sessions for the 84th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management Meeting (AOM 2024) held in person 9-13 August 2024 in Chicago, IL, USA. You are encouraged to work with colleagues both within and outside of the HR Division in developing and submitting proposals for PDW sessions. PDWs will take place Friday, 9 August through Sunday, 11 August 2024.
The PDW format is highly flexible and can take nearly any form (workshops, tutorials, panels, debates, round table discussions, etc.). PDWs provide opportunities to experiment with new models and ideas that do not fit within the confines of the scholarly program. Think about the sessions you wish were offered but have not seen on the program. The HR Division encourages the submission of creative ideas for interactive sessions that actively engage participants in learning new information, developing new research lines, acquiring new skills and techniques, or addressing pressing issues or questions. PDWs can address any issue of concern to HR scholars and/or practitioners. Sessions on linking HR research and practice, international HR, teaching, and facilitating Division member professional development are especially encouraged, given the expressed interests of our membership. Finally, please also consider but do not feel bound by the 2024 conference theme, “Innovating for the Future”. It is anticipated that all sessions will be hosted in-person on-site in Chicago.
If you have questions or would like to discuss or suggest a potential workshop idea, please contact HR Division PDW Chair Corine Boon. This is particularly important if you are considering a teaching-related session, as it may be possible to package your idea together with another teaching-related session to form a longer teaching-oriented PDW (thus increasing the likelihood of acceptance).
All proposals should be submitted using the AOM Submission Center. Please be sure to follow the AOM’s PDW Submission Guidelines. The submission system opens early December 2023. The submission deadline is Tuesday, 9 January 2024 at 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5) but earlier submissions are encouraged. Also note that submissions have increased in recent years. Space on the PDW program is limited and highly competitive, so we cannot guarantee that all proposals will be accepted.
We look forward to receiving your proposals!
