2024 Division PDW Program: Call for Submissions

PDW Chair:  Hana Johnson, Washington State University

The Managerial and Organizational Cognition (MOC) Division invites you to submit professional development workshop (PDWs) proposals for the 84th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management to be held in person in Chicago, Illinois, USA 9–13 August 2024. All PDWs will take place Friday, 9 August through Sunday, 11 August 2024.

Think about it!

The MOC Division is devoted to understanding individual and collective cognitive processes in organizational contexts, including, but not restricted to: culture and cognition, the nature and role of mental models and representations, judgment and decision making, attribution processes, individual differences, non-conscious forms of cognition (e.g., intuition), cognitive institutionalism, emotion, ideology, diversity, social construction, identity/identification, image, reputation, sense making/meaning making, symbols and artifacts, categorization, knowledge creation and management, individual learning, organizational learning and memory, and communities of practice.

Learn 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 PDWs 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, the AOM 2024 theme “Innovating for the Future” when developing your PDW proposals. 

Tell us about it!

Please be sure to follow the Academy of Management's PDW Guidelines for Submission.

PDW submissions should be made through the Academy's Submission Center website. The Submission Center opens  early December 2023. The submission deadline is Tuesday, 9 January 2023 at 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5).

You are welcome and encouraged to discuss potential PDWs with Hana Johnson before submitting your proposal.
