    Join us for WAM's 65th conference in Long Beach, Calfornia   around the theme "Work and Well-being"
    March 13-16, 2024
    We will meet in beautiful Southern California for the 65th Western Academy of Management (WAM) conference. The conference will be held at the Hilton Long Beach, in Long Beach, California, 25 miles south of downtown Los Angeles.
    This year's conference theme is "Work and Well-being."The increased emphasis on physical, mental, and emotional well-being has emerged as a priority to employees and employers alike. Topics from avoiding burnout to enhancing psychological safety to addressing affordable healthcare solutions are frequent in popular media and scholarly work. We hope WAM can provide an engaging atmosphere to advance our understanding of well-being from a broad range of perspectives.
    WAM will continue our partnership with the Western Case Writers Association (WCA) and
    enhance a new partnership with the Consortium for Research Methods and Analysis (CARMA),
    offering workshops and paper tracks for quantitative and qualitative methods. We are excited that Paul Godfrey is teaching a Theory Development Workshop.
    The conference will honor our Journal of Management Inquiry (JMI) Scholar, Ascendent Scholars, and Best Paper Awardees.
