    Join us for a two-day workshop on October 10-11 that will bring together leading minds and emerging scholars in management and related fields seeking to advance research on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) presented by the Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources area at the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary. 

    This workshop is an opportunity to gain feedback on an in-progress paper from top-tier EDI scholars in management and related fields, including Mikki Hebl, Eden King, Lilia Cortina, Alicia Grandey, Sandy Hershcovis, Sonia Kang, and Oscar Holmes IV. Keynote speakers Eden King and Mikki Hebl will present insights from their latest book, Working Together: Practicing the Science of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. 

    This workshop is intended to provide a highly individualized and intimate conference experience. There are 30 spaces available for the workshop. The program committee will evaluate applications on a first-come, first-serve basis until spots fill up. Interested scholars should submit either a paper or an extended abstract (minimum five pages) of an in-progress paper. Accepted submissions will receive individualized feedback from an expert in the field and other conference attendees. The more well-developed the submission, the better your feedback will be. Submissions should focus on research related to EDI in the workplace.

    Paper submissions must follow APA guidelines, and your submission package (word or pdf) must include:

    1. An extended abstract (minimum 5 pages) or paper (max 30 double-spaced pages excluding tables, figures, title page, and abstract)
    2. An abstract of max 200 words
    3. A title page that identifies co-authors with affiliations

    Submission deadline: Thursday, August 15, 2024, at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time
