Strategy-as-Practice (SAP) Community Day 2021: The Inclusiveness of Practice Research and Practice Research of InclusivenessPart of the EGOS pre-colloquium program on July 7, 2021.What is the role of organizing and strategy-making for addressing the issue of an inclusive society? How can SAP research help organization scholars to understand and address the challenge of fostering inclusiveness in organizations, institutions, and environments? Entitled "The Inclusiveness of Practice Research and Practice Research of Inclusiveness", the SAP Community Day is designed as a space for this important conversation to take place. Through its focus on inclusiveness, the SAP Community Day also supports the theme of the overall EGOS conference. It consists of two parts with distinct goals:Part 1 (09:00-11:00, CET) aims to make the SAP community more familiar with researching inclusiveness from a practice perspective but also addresses how practice research can be more inclusive. To this end, we will have two sessions. First, we will start the day with brief introductory presentations and a subsequent panel discussion amongst experienced scholars:
These scholars will reflect on their different theoretical approaches towards inclusiveness of practice research and practice research of inclusiveness. Each of the scholars will introduce a theoretical practice-based approach, covering "classic" SAP approaches as well as those using a broader "practice turn" in areas related to strategy. Second, each panelist will host a hands-on roundtable session in which participants gain deeper insights into, and enter conversations about the conference's theme.
Part 2 (11:00-13:00, CET) features a paper development roundtable session during which each participant gets the chance to discuss their research with leading SAP scholars. The roundtables will be hosted by:
As in previous years, we encourage submissions of short research papers to be discussed at the roundtables. We also encourage the submission of research designs, empirical material, or initial interpretations (e.g., ethnographic vignettes).
The SAP Community Day will close with a short presentation on forthcoming Special Issues related to SAP and a summary of the day. In addition to the sessions, we will provide opportunities for informal networking and discussion during breaks.
