    AOM PDW on "Calling, Passion, Idealism" August 1st from 9 - 10:30 am ET

    We invite you to participate in our AOM PDW on "Calling, Passion, Idealism: Exploring Differences and Charting New Directions," scheduled for Sunday, August 1st from 9 - 10:30 am ET in a Real-time Open format, where the session will be live-streamed and the audience can ask questions, followed by a pre-registered breakout session to meet with the panelists.

    This PDW seeks to explore new directions in research on callings, passion, idealism, and meaningful work by bringing together these six leading scholars with the audience:

    Jon M. Jachimowicz

    Sally Maitlis

    Shoshana Dobrow

    Jeffery Thompson

    Sarah Ward

    Amy Wrzesniewski

    The session will be divided into two parts. In the first part, panelists will share their unique perspectives on some of the thorny questions in the areas of callings, passion, and idealism, with a goal of sparking new inquiries and directions [No pre-registration is needed to participate in the panel session].

    In the second part, all pre-registered participants will have the opportunity to meet with each other as well as with presenters in breakout rooms to share and receive feedback on any research ideas and work in progress on meaningful work, callings, passion, or idealism [Pre-registration is needed for this part].

    Should you wish to participate in the PDW breakout rooms with our panelists, please fill out the following survey by June 25th, 2021:


    We will attribute breakout rooms on a first-come, first-served basis.
