2024 Division Scholarly Program: Call for Submissions

Program Chair: Sara Soderstrom, University of Michigan

The Organizations & the Natural Environment (ONE) Division invites submissions for the scholarly program of the 84th Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM 2024), which will take place in Chicago from Friday, 9 August through Tuesday, 13 August 2024. Scholarly paper sessions and symposia will take place Sunday, 11 August through Tuesday, 13 August 2024. The Submission Center opens early December 2023, and the submission deadline is Tuesday, 9 January 2024 at 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5).

AOM’s plan for the 2024 conference is in-person with some options for recording sessions.

ONE Domain 

The ONE Division is devoted to research addressing how organizations impact and are impacted by the natural environment. Given the substantial environmental challenges we face, including climate change, resource depletion and biodiversity loss, we encourage impactful scholarship that addresses how these challenges affect managerial practice, organizational strategy, and broader society. We particularly encourage scholarship that offers insights into strategies and actions that can contribute to possible solutions.

Conference Theme

The AOM 2024 theme "Innovating for the Future” emphasizes the interplay of innovation, policy, and purpose for rethinking conventional ways of leading, managing, and organizing to reimagine how value is orchestrated, created, and distributed with and among diverse and loosely connected stakeholders.

Our Invitation

ONE invites papers and symposia that address the relationship between organizations and the natural environment, in particular those that relate to the conference theme. ONE can contribute to the AOM 2024 conference theme with a program focused on how the ONE domain intersects with innovation, policy, and purpose; considering how our research can shape how we reimagine and work towards a more just and sustainable future.

Joint symposium proposals are welcome, as the conference theme draws on multi-disciplinary approaches across other Academy of Management divisions and interest groups. We especially invite PhD students and new international members, including those who have not previously submitted research to the Academy or ONE Division. If, for your symposium, you would be inviting industry speakers and would need a conference fee waiver, please ensure details of this are included in your submission (we cannot promise the waiver will be granted as it will depend on allocations, but knowing potential needs upfront is extremely useful).

Along with this Call for Submissions, we also make a Call for Reviewers. If you plan to submit a paper, please also do your part to help us review submissions, which will include yours. Our reviewers are extremely important to constructing a rich and valuable program, by offering constructive comments and providing a supportive atmosphere within the division.

The Submission Center opens in early December 2023 and closes on Tuesday, 9 January  at 17:00 ET (UTC-5/GMT-5). Please pay attention to submission guidelines as they will be applied, and non-conforming submissions declined.

ONE Division Awards

The ONE Division offers multiple awards (see Awards section of our website). The Program Chair and Awards Team selects winners of awards for Best Paper, Best Student Paper and Best Reviewer. 

In addition, the ONE Division puts forward papers eligible for AOM awards, such as the William H. Newman Award for an outstanding single-authored paper from a dissertation and the Carolyn B. Dexter Award for Best International Paper. Indicate eligibility for these awards when making your submission (see the Orientation and Awards section in the submission guidelines for more details).

Join ONE in Chicago in 2024!

We look forward to receiving your submissions. For any questions, please contact the ONE Program Chair.
