  • OB Division’s All Year Round PDW - Burnout and Work-Life Balance: AOM

    Learning to manage work and life outside of work continues to be one of the largest challenges for academics. Couple this recurrent struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic and it is easy to understand why we are currently facing a well-being crisis. In this PDW, we invite you to hear from leading scholars in the field about their own personal experiences of burnout and work-life balance as well as how they have navigated this tension in their own lives. Throughout the session, we will provide a safe space to connect with others, receive support, and workshop a personal game plan to manage these tensions and develop healthier strategies that focus on both preventing and managing burnout. Participants in this virtual PDW will also be invited to an in-person social at AOM 2022 in Seattle to reconnect with the speakers, panelists, and other attendees and reflect on their success in implementing their “academic well-being game plan.”
  • Apply to participate in the OB Division PDW Bridging Organizational Behavior and Entrepreneurship

    The OB Division, in collaboration with the ENT Division and sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation, organizes a PDW “Bridging Organizational Behavior and Entrepreneurship, for the 2022 AOM Annual Meeting, in-person in Seattle, WA. The aim of this PDW is to stimulate and help develop research at the interface of organizational behavior and entrepreneurship.

     

    We invite researchers interested in participating to submit a short description of their research at the interface of OB and ENT that they seek to further develop. This can be a short research proposal, an extended summary of a study that you seek to develop for publication, or something that is in-between these two stages of research.
  • OB Doctoral Consortium Nominations

    OB Doctoral Student Consortium

    We are seeking nominations for the 2022 AOM OB Doctoral Student Consortium. The consortium will take place in-person at the Annual AOM conference on August 6, 2022 from 8:00AM - 6:30PM local time. The Organizational Behavior Doctoral Consortium is designed for students who are in the final year of their doctoral program (i.e., students who are currently on the job market and who have made significant progress on their dissertation/thesis research) and priority will be given to students who have made the most progress toward completing their Ph.D. program, but who have not yet defended their dissertations.

     

    The consortium includes a mix of presentations, panel discussions, and interactive sessions designed to launch doctoral students into their academic careers. Faculty presentations, interactive panels with journal editors, and roundtable sessions include topics such as crafting the right academic job, succeeding at research and publishing, and preparing for effective teaching, as well as other related topics.

    Nomination Requirements. The completed nomination should be submitted by the nominating department/school, via the survey below. Only nominations submitted via this survey will be considered.

     

    Typically, only one student per program can be accepted, though exceptions are made occasionally when two different supervisors from the same school both have students on the market in the same year.

    • The nominee’s one page vita/bio in PDF format (longer documents may be rejected). Please name the file with the nominee's last name followed by ShortCV (e.g., SmithShortCV.pdf).
