We are excited to announce the continuation of the Professional Development Workshop focused on stigma research at the Academy of Management Meeting sponsored by the Organization and Management Theory division. This PDW aims to continue our successful PDWs on organizational stigma at the AOM meetings. Building on our previous PDWs, we aim to encourage theoretically and methodologically consistent research on stigma as well as identify opportunities for future research efforts. This year's PDW consists of three parts:
An introduction that defines the topic and theme of "Expanding the Tainted Tent"
Presentations and discussions by distinguished speakers – Alessandro Piazza, Grace Augustine, and Thomas Roulet – on bringing new perspectives and theory to organizational stigma research. The discussion will conclude with an open discussion amongst all workshop facilitators.
Thematic roundtables, each facilitated by well-known scholars, which will also focus upon "challenges" that researchers are experiencing in positioning, conceptualizing, and publishing their work. Participants need to submit a 1-2-page document with an abstract of a project and a challenge statement that outlines which issue(s) they would like to discuss at the roundtables.
4-8 August 2023 (exact date/time will be updated when set by AOM)
In-person in Boston, MA, USA
